SORRY BERNIE SANDERS, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ AND THE LEFT, AMERICA IS A CAPITALIST NATION …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Sorry Bernie Sanders and the new darling of the Democrat party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Democrat party finds itself moving farther and farther to the left and socialism as an overwhelming majority of Americans prefer a free market economic system. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez previously stated that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “represents the future of our party.” Really, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, Ocasio-Cortez, is the future of the Democrats in a country that prefers free markets? Democrats are about to drive off the political cliff. If any of you actually thought or think self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has a chance of being elected, you are delusional. The idea that Democrats are purposely attaching themselves to socialism is amazing.
In New York, a Democratic Socialist candidate just unseated a near-20-year veteran in one of the state’s Democratic congressional primaries, and she contends she represents the Democratic Party’s future. But voters reject socialism in no uncertain terms.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Only 13% think socialism is a better economic system, and just as many (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Blue wave, huh?
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
The President Donald Trump economy continues to amaze. According to CNBC, state jobless claims dropped 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 218,000 for the week ended June 9, and a 44 year low. Couple this with historic low unemployment rates, all time low black unemployment rates, and all time low female unemployment rates. The economy is fantastic and people are prospering under President Donald Trump.
New applications for U.S. unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week and the number of Americans on jobless rolls declined to a near 44½-year low, pointing to a rapidly tightening labor market.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 218,000 for the week ended June 9, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Claims data for the prior week was unrevised.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 224,000 in the latest week. The Labor Department said claims for Maine and Hawaii were estimated last week.
May 2018 Jobs Report is Great News for Everyone in America Except Democrats Running for Office in 2018
DO DEMOCRATS WANT POSITIVE JOBS NUMBERS FOR AMERICA? THE ANSWER IS NO, NOT WHEN TRUMP GETS THE KUDOS.
As reported at CNBC, the May 2018 jobs report was good for everyone, except Democrat politicians looking for jobs in the 2018 midterm elections. The reality is that the U.S. economy is booming and it is President Donald Trump and the GOP who are responsible. Democrats have been nothing more than obstructionists and the “resistance” to President Trump’s agenda. Now all Americans, black, Hispanic, Asian, white, female, male, are all befitting from Trump’s economic agenda. Pelosi and Democrats would have you believe this is bad. Really? This is all they got and it is a lie.
- Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
- That’s because voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
- With the jobless rate now down to 3.8 percent, Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races face a major challenge as they try to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
Friday’s monthly employment report was great news for anyone looking for a job in America – unless you happen to be a Democrat running for Congress.
Among the many contentious topics swirling around this year’s campaign, none is more important than the perennial issue of employment. Voters who are employed are historically more likely to favor incumbents than those who are out of work.
That poses a major challenge for Democrats in 435 House districts and 35 Senate races who are looking to unseat Republican majorities in both chambers.
The economy added roughly 223,000 net new jobs in May, pushing the jobless rate a tick lower to 3.8 percent, an 18-year low.
UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FALLS TO 3.9%, BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT TO RECORD LOW OF 6.6% …
Yes, President Donald Trump is making America great again and in some cases making it greater than ever before. The Unemployment rate for April 2018 has fallen to 3.9%. This is a 17 and a half year low for the U.S. unemployment rate. The news was even better for minorities as the unemployment rate for black workers dropped to a record low 6.6%, beating the previous record low of 6.8% set in December. The jobless rate for Hispanics fell to 4.8%, tying the record reached last year and in 2006. This is tremendous news for America and troublesome for Democrats, the LEFT and the liberal MSM. Even as under the Trump administration minorities are making considerable gains in the work force, the miserable LEFT and MSM still manages to find the negative. Hmm, where were these people during the 8 yeas of Obama when blacks had double digit unemployment?
U.S. job growth increased less than expected in April and the unemployment rate dropped to near a 17-1/2-year low of 3.9 percent as some out-of-work Americans left the labor force.
The Labor Department’s closely watched employment report on Friday also showed wages barely rose last month, which may ease concerns that inflation pressures are rapidly building up, likely keeping the Federal Reserve on a gradual path of monetary policy tightening.“
Fed officials can rest easy that there is not any wage-based inflation on the horizon,” said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at MUFG in New York. “There is no need to speed up the path of interest rates because inflation isn’t heating up in a worrisome manner.”
Nonfarm payrolls increased by 164,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department reported. Data for March was revised to show the economy adding 135,000 jobs instead of the previously reported 103,000. That was the fewest amount of jobs created in six months and followed an outsized gain of 324,000 in February.
But 236,000 people left the labor force in April, adding to the 158,000 who quit in March. The labor force participation rate, or the proportion of working-age Americans who have a job or are looking for one, fell to 62.8 percent last month from 62.9 percent in March. It was the second straight monthly drop in the participation rate.
Where was the LEFT and MSM calling out Obama during his 8 years for the difference between black and white unemployment? Instead, the miserable LEFT and MSM continue to be all things negative to Trump and put Obama op on high. Really, the numbers show that there is less of a disparage between blacks and whites under Trump. Both black and white unemployment has gone down about 0.6% since the November 2016 elections,; however, the difference is that these are historic lows for blacks. The majority of time during Obama, blacks witnessed double digit unemployment as there were a record number of individuals on food stamps. The fact of the matter is that if Trump was president in 2008-2016, blacks would have seen the benefits they see now, just that much sooner.
The LEFT and Democrats are freaking out that minorities are seeing record low unemployment and might just vote as the silent black and Hispanic voter with Trump and the GOP in 2018 and 2020.
THE TRUMP ECONOMY CONTINUES TO GROW JOBS …
ADP and Moody’s Analytics. reports that private payrolls rose by 235,000 in February, well above Wall Street estimates of 195,000. The United States has gone from Barack Obama, the food stamp president, to Donald Trump, the jobs president. Trump is definitely making America great again!
Job creation saw another powerful month in February, with companies adding 235,000 positions, ADP and Moody’s Analytics reported Wednesday.
The total again defied Wall Street expectations, as economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters were expecting payrolls to grow by 195,000. Growth actually decelerated slightly, as January posted an upwardly revised 244,000 from the initially reported 234,000.
February marked the fourth month in a row that private payrolls hit 200,000 or better.
“The job market is red hot and threatens to overheat,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s, said in a statement. “With government spending increases and tax cuts, growth is set to accelerate.”
February saw broad-based gains that stretched across both the services and goods-producing sectors.
Leisure and hospitality led industry groups with 50,000 jobs, while professional and business services contributed 46,000 and trade, transportation and utilities added 44,000.
However, construction rose 21,000 and manufacturing notched 14,000 new positions. In all, goods-producing industries increased by 37,000 while all services-related businesses added 198,000.
