America Is Not Better Off Than It Was Four Years Ago

The president likes to claim that America is better off than it was four years ago, but the facts speak for themselves: 43 straight months of unemployment over 8 percent, 23 million Americans out of work or underemployed, and record-low labor force participation rates. In August alone, more than 350000 Americans gave up hope of finding a job and dropped out of the workforce altogether. The Obama Economy has failed to make things better for Americans.
