Now this is an impressive electoral strategy.
The Democrats don’t like that the U.S. Department of Labor released the latest jobs and unemployment numbers, even though they were amazing. America added 213,000 jobs, the unemployment rate is at 4 percent, and the average hourly wage over the past year has increased 2.7 percent. But apparently, having too many jobs, and record low unemployment for Hispanics and African Americans is “reckless.” At least according to Democrats.
After the report, DNC Chair and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez actually released the following statement. “With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families,” he wrote. “Trump and Republicans in Congress have been so determined to undermine workers that they held a Supreme Court seat hostage for nearly a year in order to nominate an aggressively anti-union justice, who became the deciding vote in last week’s disgraceful decision in the Janus case.”
Um… talk about being off point. Do they even have editors over there? Here’s the kicker:
“This is all part of the Republican playbook. For decades, Republicans and their wealthy corporate allies have been chipping away at workers’ rights, weakening unions, and depressing wages – all while giving massive tax cuts to the top 1%. And Janus is their most dangerous attack yet.
“Trump and Republicans in Congress are trying to build a winner-take-all economy that enriches their wealthy friends and saddles working families with the bill. Democrats want to create good-paying jobs and build an economy that works for everyone. And we will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with workers and with our brothers and sisters in the labor movement as they fight for the wages, benefits, and livelihood they deserve.”
Also, Nancy Pelosi tweeted, “The June #JobsReport shows what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty & an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations & the wealthiest 1 percent. Americans deserve better than the GOP’s raw deal.”Ha! Of course, this isn’t due to poor editing. This is what they actually believe. Democrats believe that workers care MORE about the state of the “unions” than the state of the union. Nothing could be further than the truth. No matter how much rhetoric they spew about being for the “working man,” they just simply aren’t.
What will happen to them when all of these people with new jobs begin voting for the man in office responsible for this growth?
Pop some corn, because it will at least be entertaining.
