  • Then he passed his legislation, and it began to have an effect. In the last three or four months, the private sector has produced 4.3 million new jobs. That is 40 percent more than the 2.6 million jobs produced by the private sector in the seven years of the Bush administration before the financial meltdown. That’s another relevant fact that hardly anybody knows.”

    January 275,000 jobs
    February 259,000 jobs
    March 154,000 jobs
    April 115,000 jobs
    May 69,000 jobs

    In the last three or four months, the private sector has produced less than a million new jobs.  That’s another relevant fact that Clinton doesn’t know.
