Does anyone even care about unemployment numbers now that the elections are over?
Government unemployment numbers for December showed that while the general unemployment rate remained flat at 7.8 percent, unemployment for women and African-Americans rose despite an economy that created 155,000 jobs.
Unemployment for women rose to 7.3 percent in December from 7.0 percent while the rate for African-Americans rose sharply to 14.0 percent from 13.2 percent in November.
Unemployment among African Americans has remained quite high throughout the sluggish economic recovery of the past several years, despite the steady decline in overall unemployment in the economy generally.
Obama won roughly 93 percent of the black vote this time, as well as a majority of the women’s vote. I have no sympathy for them. None.
You voted for this. Own it.
