Obama sure is a real piece of work. His disastrous economic policies have unquestionably been stifling growth and choking the life out of the private sector for going on four years now, and here he’s got the nerve to tell Congress not to “muck up” the so-called recovery.
Meanwhile, back in the real world we learn today that a record 1.2 million people dropped out of the labor force just last month.
(Reuters) – Jobs figures released on Friday show the U.S. economy is growing and healing, President Barack Obama said, calling on Congress to pass a payroll tax extension and avoid sabotaging the recovery.
“The economy is growing stronger. The recovery is speeding up. And we’ve got to do everything in our power to keep it going,” he told an audience in a northern Virginia firehouse.
“Now is not the time for self-inflicted wounds to our economy,” Obama said, describing his message to Congress as: “Do not slow down the recovery that we’re on. Don’t muck it up.”
