Obama’s Math

At the Democratic National Convention, former President Bill Clinton told America that his solution to joblessness and budget deficits was one word — arithmetic. I couldn’t agree more. Let’s take a look at Barack Obama’s record these last four years — I think you’ll agree the numbers just don’t add up:

• 23 million Americans are out of work, have stopped looking for work, or are underemployed
• $16 trillion national debt (that’s $50,000 for every American)
• 43 straight months of 8% or higher unemployment
• 4 straight trillion dollar budget deficits in a row — more than any other president combined

Ultimately, it’s simple arithmetic — the policies of Barack Obama just don’t add up to the kind of future America deserves.
