Statement about jobs by John Kerry on 3/27/2004 “…Instead we have lost 2.2 million jobs.”
WASHINGTON (AFP) – Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news – web sites) welcomed figures released showing the creation of 308,000 jobs in March, but the Massachusetts senator blasted President George W. Bush’s economic record.
“After three years of punishing job losses, the one month job creation announced today is welcome news for America’s workers. I hope it continues,” Kerry said. …
“With nearly 2.6 million private sector jobs lost during the Bush presidency, Americas families need and deserve a new economic strategy.”
John Kerry math:
2.3 million – .3 million = 2.6 million
