Actual unemployment: 16.5%

Fox News is reporting that last week alone, 565,000 people began drawing unemployment benefits for the first time. 6.88 million people are now drawing unemployment benefits. The official unemployment rate is now nearing 10% but this doesn't count those no longer receiving benefits. According to a July 2, 2009 article in the Washington Post, "the nation's actual unemployment rate in June rose from 16.4 to 16.5 percent..."

As I understand it, this is far more than the Democrats promised with their stimulus package. In fact, it is more than predicted if the stimulus package had not been implemented at all. And now some Democrats want to spend even more of your children's money in yet another stimulus!

We simply must vote these Democratic crooks out of office in 2010! Our future depends on it!
