Job Growth Numbers for October 2010
The October unemployment rate was unchanged at 9.6%, and 14.8 million Americans said they were still unemployed - a number that hasn't improved much since the beginning of the year. After the October numbers were released, President Obama said that they were "not good enough." The results of Tuesday's elections show American voters agree. President Obama and Democrats in Congress will have to work with the new Republican majority on issues like ObamaCare and Bush tax cuts if they are to succeed in strengthening the economy and creating jobs.
