Last night at the Democratic National Convention, former President Bill Clinton made a startling assertion about jobs during his speech:
“…since 1961, for 52 years now, the Republicans have held the White House 28 years, the Democrats, 24. In those 52 years, our private economy has produced 66 million private sector jobs.
So what’s the job score? Republicans, 24 million; Democrats, 42 [million].”
According to Bloomberg News and federal employment statistics, it is true.
Also, you may not know that investors actually earn more when the presidency is held by a Democrat.
