The U.S. has lost at least 2.8 million jobs since President Barack Obama signed the “stimulus” package into law on Feb. 17. 

Monthly job losses reported by the BLS are as follows:

Mar:     652,000
Apr:      519,000
May:     303,000
June:   463,000
July:     304,000
Aug:     154,000 
Sept:    219,000 
Oct.      190,000
Total:  2,804,000

Meanwhile, the Obama administration has been content to peddle contrived terms such as “jobs created and saved” and “job-years.”

ATR’s Center for Fiscal Accountability has been tracking the questionable jobs claims by the White House here, here, and here.
