Why do the Democrats keep resorting to bizarre conspiracy theories and fantasies that look like they were produced after binge watching four seasons of The Americans?
What else are they going to talk about?
They can’t talk about the economy. It’s doing too well. Health care has some potential openings, but many of the problems with health care were caused by ObamaCare. So Democrats can’t truly run on it, though they’re happy to take advantage of public anger against the party in power.
So what’s left? Ignoring numbers like these and ranting about the Russkies.
U.S. jobless rate drops to 49-year low – AP
U.S. employers added a robust 263,000 jobs in April, suggesting that businesses have shrugged off earlier concerns that the economy might slow this year and now anticipate strong customer demand.
The unemployment rate fell to a five-decade low of 3.6% from 3.8%, though that drop partly reflected an increase in the number of Americans who stopped looking for work. Average hourly pay rose 3.2% from 12 months earlier, a healthy increase though unchanged from the previous month.
Friday’s jobs report from the Labor Department showed that solid economic growth is still encouraging strong hiring nearly a decade into the economy’s recovery from the Great Recession. The economic expansion is set to become the longest in history in July.
Many businesses say they’re struggling to find workers, yet each month they seem to add a substantial number. Some have taken a range of steps to fill jobs, including training more entry-level workers, loosening educational requirements and raising pay sharply.
Years of steady hiring have sharply lowered unemployment for a range of population groups. The unemployment rate for women fell last month to 3.1%, the lowest point since 1953. The rate for Latinos dropped to 4.2%, a record low since 1973, when the government began tracking the data.
For Asians, joblessness has matched a record low of 2.2%. And the unemployment rate for veterans of the Iraq and Afghan wars dropped to 1.7%, also a record low.
What else can the Dems run on in 2020 except anger and variations on, “But, Trump is a bad man.”
