Obama’s Inflated Jobs Claim

FactCheck.org – 2 hrs 11 mins ago

 

In a new TV ad, President Obama makes an inflated claim to have added 5.2 million new jobs. The total added during his time in office is actually about 325,000.

In the ad, the president says “over 5 million new jobs” while the figure “5.2 million” appears on screen. But that’s a doubly misleading figure.

Viewers would need to pay close attention to the on-screen graphic to know that the ad refers only to employment gains starting in March 2010, omitting the 4.3 million jobs that were lost in the first year of Obama’s term.

And there’s no way a viewer would know that the total counts only private-sector jobs, omitting continuing losses in government employment.
