President Obama: Lowest Jobless Rate Since I Took Office

 

President Obama tells the American people that as a nation we are moving forward four years after the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. He says while there’s more work to do, America‘s businesses have added 5.2 million jobs over the past 31 months and the unemployment rate is at the lowest level since the President took office. To keep our country moving forward, he saysCongress should act on the President’s plan to keep taxes low for 98% of the American people, rather than holding it hostage to give more budget-busting tax cuts to the wealthiest 2%. Congress should cut red tape so responsible homeowners can save about $3,000 a year on their mortgage by refinancing at lower rates, and act on the President’s proposal to create a veterans jobs corps to help our returning heroes find work. He says it’s time for our elected leaders to get back to work to help the middle class and build our economy from the middle-out, not the top down.
