UPDATE from the Ministry of Truth! – December UE Rate
We are pleased…VERY!…to bring you the December 2012 (AOO 5) UnEmployment report. The Labor Department reports that the unemployment rate
rose from 7.7 stayed at 7.8 percent last month. Rumors that November’s rate was revised higher from an initially reported 7.7 percent are just that: rumors! (most likely spread by Superstorm Sandy on her way out of town)
Our Comrades at the A/P
spin note that this reflects: “a steady gain that shows hiring held up during tense fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington.”
TENSE fiscal cliff negotiations!! Frankly we just don’t pay our Congress Critters enough!!
So know that all is well here in AOO 5 (Year 5 of the Age Of Obama)…the economy is
stagnant stable at 7.8% FUNemployment!!
