Obama Administration did not manipulate the BLS Jobs Report

Overview of this Defense


Date Originated: October of 2012
Categories: Jobs & Obama Administration
The BLS Jobs Report reported that the national unemployment rate went down from 8.1% in August to 7.8% in September. Twitted filled with Republicans claiming the books were somehow cooked, the numbers aren’t real, etc. This is a clear fabrication and trumped up conspiracy theory brought on by the Republicans. The Obama Administration has no ability to skew this numbers. In fact, no administration can mess with BLS Jobs Report numbers, even if they wanted to. This is a fabricated no issue, being brought up by Republicans because it looks good for Obama going into the big re-election.
