We wrote earlier this week about the partial shutdown of the federal government
forcing enabling the administration of Barack Obama to withhold his Department of Labor’s September 2013 jobs report.

Private sector payroll company ADP didn’t shut down, though, and released its monthly employment summary this week. According to ADP the U.S. economy created 166,000 jobs in September – below the anticipated mark of 180,000. Also, previously released data from July and August was revised downward by a combined 54,000 jobs.
“The job market appears to have softened in recent months,” Obamaphile Mark Zandi noted, according to Zero Hedge.
For those of you keeping score at home here’s the last year of ADP data …
Fear not, though, Obama lovers. Pretty soon all that “softening” will be the fault of the shutdown … which of course is the fault of fiscal conservatives who had the nerve to try and block a job-killing socialist abomination in an effort to expand employment opportunity in this decidedly non-stimulated country.
Those bastards …
Who had the nerve to wait until the last second to start their 42nd attempt at stopping the ACA.
You’re right, though. It is an abomination to a true socialist solution like single payer. It doesn’t lower costs or fix gaps in coverage like, for instance, Medicare for all would.
You know what they say Smirks, “…if at first you don’t succeed, kick a Dimocrat in the nuts and try, try again…”
How does anyone trust new job numbers anymore? If they came with a margin of error like polls do, it would be -15/-25%.
