what president didn't get laughed at and made fun of? certainly not Obama, Clinton, Bush or Bush.
It has much more to do w/ faith in the market. The previous administration was constantly attacking employers financially. This administration so far has at least given the appearance of the opposite. Now if we could get rid of that goddamn mandate forcing small businesses w/ 50 employees to provide insurance or "pay to play" we would see an even greater surge in employment though the tax cut to business owners is a big help.

Actually if you look at the years, it was steadily declining during the Clinton years. Then started back up during the Bush years. Then it spiked starting in 2007 (Bush) with the financial melt down. It has been steadily declining since 2012. TNV's claim that it has DOUBLED in the last 6 years is simply false.
Thanks from skews13 and Camelot

Did that on the latter half of both Clinton and Obama. Interesting...seriously interesting.

They so want to believe what they've been spoon fed on talk radio and Fox news for 10 years. Without it, they wouldn't have anything to say.

Even the economists are a bit stumped at WHY wages aren't rising.

Fridayís BLS statistics showed that weak wage growth is very much still with us, with the average hourly pay for all workers in the non-farm economy rising in May just 8 cents an hour to $26.92. Since last May, average hourly wages have risen 71 cents. Thatís 2.7 percent over the 12-month period. During that same period, inflation has risen 2.5 percent. In other words, the average worker is just treading water economically.

only problem your graph is the CBO PROJECTION.

only problem the Projections were INCORRECT (just like their projection for FY 2018 deficits)

under Obama SNAP spending INCREASED not decline from 2009 by 13.6%. (That is because his economy was CRAP)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/t...tamp-expansion

By end of 2016 SNAP recipients increased by 11,000,000

That is the difference in you and I you read projections, and don't follow up if those projections were correct.
