New government economic and employment figures released July 31 produced much enthusiasm among the corporate establishment media up and down the Washington, D.C.-New York City corridor, but outside the beltway in flyover country – that would be the rest of the United States – that there economy isn’t looking nearly so glitzy. And what’s more, the administration’s spin on it is shockingly disingenuous, but we expect that from this White House by now.
Ten days earlier, on July 21, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney crowed that his bosses’ administration had successfully pulled the nation from the bowels of the “Great Recession” by creating some 7.2 million private sector jobs.
“And what is absolutely true is that we have come a long way since the depths of the Great Recession. We’ve created over 7.2 million private sector jobs,” Carney told reporters at a press briefing.
‘We’re the greatest administration in history! Blah, blah, blah.’
Welfare, food stamps, disability and jobs – which one of those has not risen?
