Deval Doubles Down on Unemployment

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released it’s state-by-state economic data for the month of September today.  Massachusetts unemployment rose from 9.1% in August to 9.3% in September.  In the past month Massachusetts unemployment has rises by 7,309.  New Mexico, Indiana, Nevada, and Utah all experienced rising employment numbers.  While we are in a national and international economic recession, under one party Democratic rule Massachusetts continues to do one of the worst jobs at handling the recession.

Since January of 2007 when Deval Patrick became Governor and joined the Democratic super majorities in the state legislature unemployment has more than doubled from 4.6% to 9.3%.  161,613 people have been added to the list of unemployed and Massachusetts has shed 136,123 net jobs.  Massachusetts all time high was 10.9% in January, 1976.

    There must be some kind of mistake DD4RP because when Deval Patrick was running for Governor he promised to add 100,000 new jobs to Massachusetts.  If instead we lost 161,613 jobs instead of adding 100,000 jobs then that means Deval Patrick’s projections and efforts have really ended up losing 261,613 jobs.

    No doubt one of the resident moonbats will say we can’t hold Deval to the 100,000 jobs because they were never created.  But, using Obamalogic we have to think in terms of jobs both ‘created’ or ‘saved’.  (100,000 not ‘created’ as promised plus 161,613 not ‘saved’ = 261,613 jobs lost.

    Over a quarter of a million people lost jobs because of Deval Patrick.  Not much of a track record to base a re-election campaign on.

    Yes we can!
