Weekly Initial Unemployment Claims as of July 2, 2016

Let's make sure that no one forgets how bad things were at the end of the last Republican administration. 

This quick little graph shows initial weekly unemployment claims from 2005 until now. (The latest numbers were released this morning, Thursday, July 7.) We now have 70 weeks of initial weekly unemployment claims below 300,000... The last time we had such a run of low initial claims was 1973!!

Keep the Republicans out of the White House, and let's toss them out of Congress. Enough already.
