Out Of Touch White House Says “Recovery Continues”
This is just unbelievable. On the heels of today’s horrific jobs report in which not only were a paltry 96,000 jobs added, but almost 360,000 also left the workforce, the White House Council of Economic Advisers chairman Alan Krueger had an absolutely ridiculous statement on this complete disaster. From Politico:
“While there is more work that remains to be done, today’s employment report provides further evidence that the U.S. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the Great Depression,” he said in a statement.
Continuing to recover? Try telling that to not only the 360,000 people who just gave up looking for job, but the millions and millions of Americans who are out of work. And they say the GOP is out of touch? Please.
