    Under Trump, Uninsured Rate Rises For First Time Since Obamacare Took Effect ? Talking Points Memo


    "Since the end of 2016, the survey found, the uninsured rate has climbed 1.4 percentage points, from 10.9 percent to 12.3 percent, with roughly*3.5 million more Americans uninsured. The current uninsured rate is the highest since the end of 2014."

    And this is going to get worse, and worse, and worse....

    Roll on Trumpconomy!

    Is Putin propping up the economy just to make Trump to good and Hillary look bad?

    https://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm


    Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 261,000 in October, and the unemployment rate
    edged down to 4.1 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.

    The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to
    as involuntary part-time workers) declined by 369,000 to 4.8 million in October. These
    individuals, who would have preferred full-time employment, were working part time
    because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find full-time
    jobs. Over the past 12 months, the number of involuntary part-time workers has decreased
    by 1.1 million. (See table A-8.)
    Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased by 63 cents, or
    2.4 percent.

    And:


    In September, the BLS initially said the economy lost 33,000 jobs. That result was revised today to show a net gain of 18,000 jobs.

    Wow, we are on track to see a 65% increase in economic growth on last year in the Obamaconomy!

    https://bea.gov/newsreleases/nationa...ewsrelease.htm

    Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annual rate of 3.0 percent in the third quarter of
    2017 (table 1), according to the "advance" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the
    second quarter, real GDP increased 3.1 percent.

    https://www.frbatlanta.org/cqer/research/gdpnow.aspx

    Latest forecast: 3.3 percent — November 9, 2017

    The GDPNow model forecast for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the fourth quarter of 2017 is 3.3 percent on November 9, unchanged from November 3.

    What, no one wants to celebrate the surge in growth of the Trumpconomy?

    It is a welcome change from the pitiful growth rate we had last year.

    Here in the Trumpconomy store clerks and burger flippers are getting $10 to $15 an hour.
