    pre-announce the 51st straight month of private sector jobs growth which ties the record going back at least 50 years.

    Next month, we'll be able to say that the current run of jobs growth sets a new record. Why wouldn't Democrats want to shout that from the rooftops, instead of countering with, "Yeah, but . . ." as I sometimes find.

    I say, "Yeah, but what? Let's take some credit for a record that hasn't been achieved before. Leave the wet blankets and crepe hangers to the opposition."

    In the same piece I sliced and diced the Health Services numbers to show that jobs are being added faster in the Medicaid expansion states.
