    Plummeted, I bet….and Mark Schaffer posted within hours of it coming back online. What a shill.

    Wow – another 275k jobs in a single month. More evidence of how ObamaCare is killing American jobs.

  4. Steve says:

    ACA is not fully implemented yet…

    As tried to explain this to you Tom while you were at the RJ but it never got through. I don’t think the powers that be understand that people didn’t go to the RJ to read the articles nearly as much as they did to communicate with others.

    Maybe someone will learn that now?

  6. The paper posted its rationale on Facebook, but never really says “why” they returned them.

  7. The unemployment rate went up.

  8. Steve says:

    Nyp claims 275k this is also incorrect.

    “The economy barreled through the last three months with strong momentum, the Labor Department said Friday, as American employers added 257,000 jobs in January, wage growth rebounded and more people went looking for work in an improving labor market. With new figures on the last two months of the year, 2014 turned out to be the strongest year for job gains since 1999. “

    Why is rate of growth the only criteria? Earnings for the middle class haven’t grown for 35 years and you guys think that’s fine. Why does it now bother you that the rich aren’t gaining fast enough today? They’re doing fine.

  11. Steve says:

    “Why does it now bother you that the rich aren’t gaining fast enough today?”

    Is a question for the left and the right. But in this instance the rate of growth is so important because the recovery is nowhere near what the left claimed it would be.
