    This is the labor force participation rate. If that sounds like a technical term that only economists would care about, that’s a mistake. It’s the percentage of the labor force that is actually working.

    As Doug Ross points out on his blog, adjust for seasonality and look down the columns for each month, while paying special attention to 2009. Look closely.

    Did you catch that? Not a single time under President Obama have they ever gone up year-on-year for any given month.

    What does this mean? It means that as the unemployment rate has steadily dwindled to the still historically high 6.3%, none of that has to do with more people as a percentage of the population finding employment.

    OK, Obama apologists and rose-colored glasses aficionados, let's hear the latest round of excuses and pie-in-the-sky optimism that isn't based in any kind of reality whatsoever.

    The Democrats don't know how to make money. It is a safe prediction that without 2/3rds majorities in both houses of Congress for the GOP, the chart will continue to decline towards the basement.

    It is such a long time until January 29, 2017!

    Not really. Democrats know how to make money for themselves.
