Numbers

The people of the US apparently think that Republicans can handle the economy better than Democrats, and yet:
  • U.S. unemployment rate, October, 2009: 10.0%
  • U.S. unemployment rate, September, 2014: 5.9%
  • Federal deficit, fiscal year 2009: $1.414 trillion
  • Federal deficit, fiscal year 2014: $483 billion
Unemployment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
