Letter: Forward is really backward

The Columbian

We learn that the unemployment numbers for October were higher than reported; we learn that record numbers are on food stamps and welfare; we discover that applications for jobless benefits surged by 78,000 to 439,000 in the week ending Nov. 10, the most since April 2011, according to the Labor Department. The highest numbers came from Pennsylvania and Ohio, where there were thousands of layoffs in October, but nothing from a sycophantic media. Some analysts claim the actual unemployment rate is closer to 16 percent and that because of the Obamacare tax, hundreds of thousands more will be laid off.

The stock market is still tumbling, then we find the administration lying about Benghazi, and that some people in New York and New Jersey still do not have power or help, worse than Katrina, but there’s still nothing negative from the media.

The Obama’s administration’s regurgitated excuse: “It’s Bush’s fault.”

How’s moving forward helping you now?
