The employment numbers are off the charts good. So good in fact that the NY Times, no fans of President Donald Trump, couldn’t find the words to properly describe it.
In a story titled, “We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are,” the New York Times “Upshot” writer Neil Irwin raved about the jobs report, calling it “splendid and excellent.”
From NY Times:
“‘Salubrious,’ ‘salutary’ and ‘healthy’ work as words to describe the 0.3 percent rise in average hourly earnings, which are up 2.7 percent over the last year — a nice improvement but also not the kind of sharp increase that might lead the Federal Reserve to rethink its cautious path of interest rate increases,” he wrote.
The U.S. unemployment numbers hit an 18-year low in May and businesses added 223,000 jobs.
And for women and black Americans, the numbers were great, with unemployment falling to 3.6 for women and 5.9, a record low for African-Americans.

But that didn’t make House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi happy who came out with a line that the GOP should run over and over again in ads, alternating with their ads of her embrace of MS-13.
“Strong employment numbers mean little.” That’s why Democrats are telling you, they don’t care about your employment.
She and the other Democrats would rather Americans suffer than give Trump even the smallest amount of credit for the way he’s turned around the economy.
From Fox News Insider:
“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch,” the House Minority Leader wrote in a statement on Friday.
Pelosi argued that Republicans’ “cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign” is spiking families’ premiums by double digits and the “GOP tax scam” is enriching Big Pharma executives and shareholders instead of lowering prescription drug costs for seniors and sick children.
“Democrats know that the American people deserve A Better Deal, with Better Jobs, Better Wages and a Better Future. We are committed to creating millions of new good-paying jobs and raising wages, lowering the soaring cost of living for families and giving every American the tools to succeed in the 21st Century economy,” Pelosi wrote. “Democrats will never stop fighting for the hard-working middle class families who are the backbone of our nation.”
That doesn’t even make sense. So it’s better that unemployment numbers be higher?
And healthcare costs are high because Obamacare blew up the system and raised premiums for most Americans, GOP warned about it and it was built into the system. It was the Democrats who pushed for it.
Capitalizing words like ‘Better’ don’t make a plan. Ideas and actions such as tax cuts are what have supercharged the economy and enabled a lot of that ‘middle-class’ that Pelosi claims to care about to get higher wages.
Yet they have plenty of plans and energy for illegal aliens and countless liberal agenda items. All except what they’re actually supposed to be there for – working for their constituents.
