Romney is claiming he will raise 12 million jobs. I think, that no matter who is president, 12 million jobs will be created. Here is why….
Take twelve million and divide it by 48 months…. ( 4 years times the 12 months in each year….. That total of jobs created each month, is…. 250,000. (Romney once boasted he could create 500,000 a month). Today, under the Obama administration, we have created more than 150,000 new private sector jobs almost every month this year. So 100,000 more is within reach, no matter who gets the White House. Mathmatically that is just 20,000 new businesses a month hiring 5 people, or 1000 businesses spread across the entire United States of America, hiring 5 people per working day. Quite reachable.
The CBO is conservatively predicting 9.6 million jobs by 2016. Moody’s Analytics is predicting 12 million. It has nothing to do with who will be president.
New Housing starts are the highest since July 2008. . Consumer confidence is the highest it has been in 7 months. Unemployment claims drop to a 4.5 year low, and the raw post date coming in after initial predictions, is driving that total even further downwards….
It appears that the Democratic Policies and leadership of the Obama Administration are working. And considering the depth of the recession, they are working rather well..
So if Romney does create 12 million jobs in the next term if he is elected, he can thank Obama for doing all the work for him…….
Just think how well we could have done without Republicans getting in the way and messing up the growth?
