As I've detailed often before, Obama has benefited from a drastic drop in the number of people who are counted in the workforce. It has kept his "official" government-reported unemployment rate below ten percent, even though millions of more people are not working than when he took office. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here's what the LFPR has done under Obama:
|Labor Force Participation Rate since January 2009|
|Labor Force Participation Rate since 2003|
Flat for several years, with a decline beginning in January 2009 that accelerated and continues to this day, giving Obama an artificially low unemployment rate that makes all the headlines.
Congratulations. If you've read this far, then you've seen something the majority of Americans have no clue about.
