The ObamaPravda press corpse is excited today over 7.6% unemployment!
In 2009, Obama pushed a trillion dollar stimulus bill through Congress, using this graph.
Obama’s crack economic team said that if Congress failed to pass the stimulus plan, unemployment would be 5.1% in Q3 2013. So Congress passed the stimulus plan, and we got 7.6% unemployment in Q3 2013, 50% higher than if Congress did nothing.
