Our fabulous policy shop has tallied a new handful of numbers for you regarding the record high unemployment rate in this country.
While Americans suffer, Democrats are spending their time trying to force Pelosi's health care takeover through Congress. The shocking 10.2 percent unemployment only tells part of the story of the struggles of average Americans that Democrats ignore. A deeper look at the numbers reveals the true cost of the Democrats' economic policies, especially for the nation's most vulnerable people.
Here is a sample:
15,700,000: Americans unemployed and looking for work-the highest number ever. Since the trillion dollar Democrat "stimulus" was passed, the number of unemployed Americans has increased by nearly three million.
190,000: Individuals whose jobs were eliminated in October.
1,737,000: People unemployed in October because they have been laid off.
2,804,000: Jobs lost since Democrats' "stimulus" was passed in February.
9,284,000: People who are working only part-time because they cannot find full time employment.
