More Barack Obama Hope & Change, Unemployment Rate Soars in US Cities


Hey folks in US American cities, how’s that “Hopey, Changey” stuff working out for you?


Here is some great news brought to you by the policies and efforts of President Barack Hussein Obama.  According to the Labor Department, the  unemployment rates in 363 US metropolitan areas rose in January 2010 and and 346 areas reported year on year declines in their number of jobs, the Labor Department said on Friday.

Nearly 200 metropolitan areas reported jobless rates of at least 10 percent in January, showing that unemployment problems persist at the local level.

California has been especially hard hit during the recession that began in late 2007, and the Labor Department data showed the state’s jobs situation continues to deteriorate, with an overall unemployment rate of 12.5 percent in January.

The three areas with the highest jobless rates in the country, all above 20 percent, were all located in California, the most populous U.S. state.

More great jobs news brought to the American people as Barack Obama fixates himself on Obamacare. 35 US cities suffer unemployment above 15%.  All this while Obama spends all of his time on an issue like health care that is not even in the top 3 or 4 on “The People’s” priority list. Areas like Pennsylvania see the the highest jobless rate since 1984.

Unemployment rates continue to rise, with the majority of U.S. metropolitan areas showing an increase in January, according to a government report.

In fact, there were 35 metropolitan areas with unemployment rates at or above 15% in January. California and Michigan remain the hardest hit, with 19 cities in California showing rates above 15%, according to the Labor Department. Michigan logged the next highest number, with 6.

In December, there were 25 cities with jobless rates above 15%, most of which were also in California and Michigan.

The irony, it was the metropolitan areas and big cities that voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama in 2008.  With low approval ratings in his handling of health care and the economy … Democrats are in for a disaster of epic proportions come this Fall.

      the unemployment rate today is a bit higher because of the recession but hopefully the economy would recover soon.;`:
