95,000 Jobs Lost in September

The September jobs report released on Friday revealed a loss of 95,000 jobs in the U.S. economy. Struggling local governments shed 76,000 jobs while private employers added 65,000. The number of added jobs was below forecasts as the unemployment rate remained at 9.6%.

This is the fourth straight month that saw the economy saw a loss in workforce. Slower than expected private growth combined with struggling local governments have increased the notion that the Federal Reserve will offer a form of stimulus next month at its November meeting.

There are currently 14.8 million of Americans out of work and another 9.5 who are working part-time looking for full-time jobs. It is taking many Americans a longer period of time to find work as well. Over 40 percent of the unemployed have been without work for at least 6 months.

During a visit to a family-owned small business in Maryland, President Obama stated that everything has been done to hasten the recovery. “We have to keep doing everything we can to help accelerate this recovery. Yes, the trend line in private sector job growth is moving in the right direction, but I’m not interested in trends or figures, as much as I am interested in the people behind them, the millions of hard-working Americans swept up in the most devastating recession of our lifetimes,” he said.

This is the last jobs report before the November elections. The rate of unemployment has displeased voters and Obama will struggle to retain Democratic seats.

  1. Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, who has used the race card and has the same Modus Operandi as Sen. Harry Reid in enacting new laws to maintain illegal immigration. First bill in the next session of the Senate , will be another try at Amnesty by Reid, Pelosi and Napolitano. Voting–YES–on funding Sanctuary Cities (March 2008), even when deaths at the hands of illegal alien criminals has spiraled out of control; Voted—YES–on Comprehensive Immigration Reform–Amnesty; Voted–NO–In declaring the English official language of government; that would save millions of dollars in judicial documents in 176 foreign languages and professional translators for court appearances (June 2007). Voted–YES–on another Guest Worker program (May 2006), resembling the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act gave Amnesty that upped the population and in addition voted–YES–on illegal aliens being able to participate in our Social Security system (May 2006), that is on the rocks now and then providing Social Services to non citizens.

    Heaven help us—Americans have worked all their lives so there able to collect Social Security to keep them afloat for the rest of their lives. But Barbara Boxer has attracted the people’s outrage to join the rest of the Liberal crowd to enact this legislation, allowing foreigners who have never paid into this financial pool access to our Social Security? In my view as a Tea Party advocate–ALL these incumbents should be shown the road out of town, tarred and feathered. Federal law already has mandated free health care for anybody, who can dodge the US border Guards, plus education for their children and an overcrowded prison system. Estimates are over a hundred billion dollars a year, with a large proportion spent to support the instant citizenship of babies intentionally born here. None of these massive taxpayer funds cover the draining of public welfare at the State, County and city outpouring of welfare payment in services and cash.

    Los Angeles is just one haven for illegal aliens and expenditures will keep skyrocketing upwards, if the majority of Democratic Liberals in Sacramento are not removed. California cannot pay its bills, because the amount expended to support the 2.5 million illegal alien households in the county. In the midterm elections watch cautiously illegal aliens violating federal voting laws. Be particularly observant of absentee balloting, as it’s not that complicated for foreigners to vote and alter the direction of voting numbers. The whole system of “Honor Voting” has been compromised in the last ten years and may have severe implications in close races in LA and in every other precinct across the country.
