BURN! Bernie Sanders Calls BS on Obama’s Claim of 4.9% Unemployment – Says It’s REALLY 10%

Obama has been busily insisting that unemployment rates have dropped under his presidency. But at last night’s debate, Bernie Sanders snuck in a little bombshell about what the real unemployment rate is.

Sanders said, “I do believe that in the year 2016, we have to look in terms of public education, as colleges — as part of public education, making public colleges and universities tuition free. I believe that when real unemployment is close to 10%, and when our infrastructure, our roads, our bridges, our water systems, Flint, Michigan, comes to mind, our wastewater plants, our rail, our airports, in many places, are disintegrating, yeah, we can create 13 million jobs by rebuilding our infrastructure, at a cost of a trillion dollars.”

Of course, Sanders can criticize Obama for the high unemployment rate all he wants, but it’s not like socialism has ever, at any time in history, led to an explosion in jobs. So he might want to tread lightly there.
