Obama Takes His Place In History


Real U.S. Unemployment Rate Is 11.8%

Investor's Business Daily has calculated the real unemployment rate in this country and it's a lot higher than the numbers released by the Obama administration. One of the Labor Department's "dirty little secrets" is that the monthly jobless rate does not count people who have given up looking for work. When you factor in those folks, the real unemployment is in double-digits: 11.8 percent to be exact.

From Investor's Business Daily:
Census employees "faked" employment survey data, possibly accounting for an unemployment drop just before the 2012 election, claims the New York Post.

But even taking the government figures at face value, the jobless rate is radically distorted — and by far more than a short-term drop of a few tenths of a percentage point.

The unemployment rate was 7.3% as of October, still high but essentially at the lowest level since the end of 2008. However, almost all of the apparent improvement has come from a historic exodus from the labor force.

Excluding this dramatic shift, the jobless rate would be 11.8%, 4.5 percentage points above the official figure and virtually unchanged from peak levels.

Pa. Attorney General Kane Still Raising Campaign Cash

She's been in office for just 11 months and still has three full years left in her term as Pennsylvania attorney general, but Democrat Kathleen Kane continues to hold fundraising events.

Sen. Pat Toomey: All of Obamacare 'is unworkable'

Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey issued a blistering press release today following the release of dismal Obamacare enrollment numbers:
"Today’s enrollment numbers are further evidence that the President's health care law is a train wreck in the making.  Even more troubling are the millions who are losing health coverage they like because the President deemed those plans inadequate and failed to make good on his promise that 'if you like your plan, you can keep it.' To make matters worse, these newly uninsured – including many Pennsylvanians – are not able to obtain new coverage online because the Obamacare website is not functioning adequately.

 "The faulty website is only the tip of the iceberg. It's not technical glitches that will doom this system, it is the fact that the President’s health care law forces people to buy overpriced health plans they don't want, hikes taxes, and puts important, personal health care decisions in the hands of politicians and bureaucrats instead of patients and their doctors. The whole law is unworkable."
