Rand Paul, Obama & Black Unemployment

Paul also said that the black unemployment rate hasnt budged under Obama, but it has. It reached a high of 16.8 percent in March 2010 and dropped to a low of 12.5 percent in November lower than the 12.7 percent rate when Obama took office. That wasnt the case for two of http://www.obamastudentloanforgiveness.net his recent predecessors, Reagan and Bush. Under Reagan, the black unemployment rate went up a full percentage point from 14.6 percent in January 1981 to 15.6 percent in November 1985 even as the white unemployment rate fell from 6.7 percent to 5.9 percent. Under Bush, the rates went up for both blacks and whites. But it went up faster for blacks, from 8.2 percent in January 2001 to 10.6 percent in November 2005 the biggest increase in the black unemployment rate of any of the four presidents at that point in their second terms.

Obama, Top Republicans Back Modest Budget Deal

The government has plenty of other options available to monitor such people, at a cost of as little as $15 per person. For the first 205 years of America’s existence, there was no federal system for detaining immigrants. The process began in 1981. Financial Speculation Tax Wall Street loves to gamble. In good times, financial speculation is the source of tremendous profits in America’s banking system, but when the bets go bad, the government picks up the tab, as evidenced by the epic bank bailouts of 2008 and 2009. Unfortunately, this speculation is difficult to define in legalistic terminology and even more difficult to police.

Have Obama’s falling numbers stabilized?

It wasnt just the technical challenges of HealthCare.gov that the administration managed poorly. The White House was completely unprepared for the furor over canceled insurance plans; thats a political problem that Sebelius, a former insurance regulator, shouldve seen coming. The failures extend beyond the health-care rollout. Obama wanted to nominate Lawrence Summers as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank — or at least wanted the option to do so. But the legislative affairs team failed to muffle dissension among Democrats on the Senate Banking Committee (in fact, it seemed like they failed to even try). Similarly, Obama wanted congressional authorization to strike Syria.

Obama Needs to Fire Some People

While the number is nothing to brag about, especially compared to where the President stood in public opinion the first half of this year, the figure suggests that Obama, at least for now, has stemmed the downward slide of his poll numbers that started in the late spring and was accentuated by the extremely flawed roll out of the new federal health care law the past two months. “What you see in these new polls is evidence the President’s approval numbers have stabilized, and ticked back up a bit from the worst of the roll out damage. So he is in a slightly better place,” CNN Chief National Correspondent John King said. “But the foundation beneath him is weaker – people still have doubts about Obamacare, about his management abilities, about his trustworthiness. That weaker foundation makes a bigger rally in his standing harder to pull off.” The President’s disapproval rating stands at 53% in the Poll of Polls, which was compiled on Wednesday and is an average of seven non-partisan, live operator, national surveys of the president’s approval rating conducted over the past eight days.
