Every time someone from the DNC repeats the Conservative phrase "Private-Sector Job Growth" it implies public workers don't matter. They do matter. We need to end this phrase and support ALL workers in America.
Implying that my middle school English teacher doesn't matter is personal. Implying that the people who fix my street don't matter is personal.
I received an email from the DNC today. It was touting the President's well deserved jobs record. He has done an incredible job leading jobs to expand in America and strengthening worker confidence that their jobs will be there tomorrow. But then I read the phrase "Private-Sector Job Growth" and I immediately became furious. How loud do we have to get? How direct do we need to be? Those in charge of communicating for the Left need to stop re-enforcing Conservative talking points so we can finally begin to move our nation in the right direction.
Below is the email I received:
On Friday, it was announced that we've hit our 23rd consecutive month of job growth. We've seen 3.7 million private-sector jobs created during that time.
Still, you're probably familiar with one of the GOP's favorite go-to lies: bashing the President's jobs record.
Mitt Romney's called him a job destroyer, claiming that the President "has not created any new jobs." Newt Gingrich's taken it a step further, saying, "the President has now spent three years proving that he kills jobs in energy, he kills jobs in manufacturing, he kills jobs in virtually every part of American life."
We've had about enough of that. And we're pushing back.
The folks over at the Obama campaign put together a jobs chart, which lays out the past four years of monthly jobs numbers, from under President Bush in December 2007 up until this past month.
Check it out, then pass it on:
Democratic National Committee
It should be noted, the President has not only reversed the massive job losses under the previous Republican President, he has begun to add jobs to the American economy. The jobs chart they talk about is impressive.
Thanks for all that you do!
