Skip to comments.(Pathetic) Pelosi: 'Strong employment numbers mean little'
Posted on 06/02/2018 7:54:18 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The New York Times headline reporting on the May jobs numbers that came out yesterday might go down in history: "We ran out of words to describe how good the jobs numbers are."
The real question in analyzing the May jobs numbers released Friday is whether there are enough synonyms for "good" in an online thesaurus to describe them adequately.
So, for example, "splendid" and "excellent" fit the bill. Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low..
"Salubrious," "salutary" and "healthy" work as words to describe the 0.3 percent rise in average hourly earnings, which are up 2.7 percent over the last year – a nice improvement but also not the kind of sharp increase that might lead the Federal Reserve to rethink its cautious path of interest rate increases.
Did aliens slip some mind-altering drug into the brains of New York Times editors?
No, but someone needs to give Nancy Pelosi a happy pill.
Washington Free Beacon:
"May's jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans' watch," Pelosi said in a statement.
"Republicans' cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign is already spiking families' premiums by double digits and pushing millions off their coverage, according to the nonpartisan CBO," she went on. "Big Pharma continues to hoard the benefits of the GOP tax scam, using their handouts to further enrich executives and shareholders instead of lowering prescription drug costs for seniors and sick kids. At the same time, the President's reckless policies are exploding gas prices,

Only free money from the government is important.
Well that explains why she does what she does. She doesnt give a damn about the unemployed.
The goal of the progressive is to make as many people as possible dependent on the government for life.
The Dems have never been able to say anything good about anything a Republican has done.
Remember Reagan’s tax cut which the Dems labeled a “BLOATED TAX CUT!”
Another great ad for the GOP
Well Nasty, if that’s true, why are you commie libs trying to give Obama the credit for these numbers. I think you need to retire. Go home and spend some more time with your grandson and his “future face of America” friend, Anthony. Maybe take your grandson to a tanning salon so his skin will be brown like the “future face” kid.
Conveniently left out is the part about currently high health care costs being the results of Obamacare that could not be killed off in time to rescue this years unfortunate victims.
I long for two days:
1. The day Pelosi Galore is unemployed.
2. The day Pelosi Galore is no more.
Check my tagline.
Conservative’s greatest hope for Midterms is that Pelosi, Schumer and Hillary keep presenting themselves as the faces and voices of the democratic Party.
I’ve upped my income, now up yours!
She nothing but a “Vote Democrap!” walking advertising joke.
They’s just crumbs.
Strong employment numbers are not important for the party of slavery - the democrat party.
It is cruel and cynical to not have hard working Americans pay for the meals and health care and housing of those Americans/illegals who choose not to work.
WHY DONT WE MAKE THAT CLEARER THAT THIS IS THE GOAL OF THE LEFT? Its so simple.
If we had likes around here....hehehe.
Yes. Dick, Nancy and Killary need to keep right on talking. The independents who vote will be seeing the hypocrisy of their jibberish and vote for the conservative alternative to the brain dead "leaders" of the DemonRat crew.
Trump lives rent free in Pelosi’s head. If he says up, she says down. It’s so automatic it has become silly, ergo her new found love for MS-13.
Pelosi: “It’s nothing but crumbs I tell ya.”
