If Obama’s ‘Recovery’ Is So Great, Why Are 4 Million Fewer Americans Working?

The administration’s news media lackeys continue to let Obama say whatever he wants without question as he keeps assuring the American public the economy is doing just fine – here’s one contrary statistic.

In the four and a half years since the great recession, the number of Americans who are actually working has fallen by four million:


Before the recession, there were 122 million full-time jobs in America, and despite Obama proclaiming over and over that millions of new jobs have been created under his regime, in this sixth year of his “recovery” there are only 118 million full-time jobs.

And yet no one questions Obama when he keeps touting his jobs record and launches into a “income gap” correction that will surely make this worse.
