It's turning around. Not for lack of Obama's best efforts, but because of them. The Midwest is sluggish in general and always has been. The engine stalled, failed, and is now chugging back to life. When Obama took office, our economy was crashing. We were falling so fast that it took years to climb out of that hole, but it's working.SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Missouri's unemployment rate continues to dip, and the decline is even greater here in the Ozarks.The Missouri Department of Economic Development reports the state jobless rate during September fell to 6.9%. That's the lowest since 2008, which was one year into the recession.In the Springfield area, layoffs continue. However, the number of new jobs is finally starting to surpass that.Greene County is now at 6.1% unemployment, which is half the number it reached within the last couple of years. Christian County is faring even better at 5.7%.
Remember who fixed it, and remember who fought relief measures and fair pay.
