It has already been proven the OBama administration lied and fudged the employment rate to get him re-elected.

Remember, they are counting only those people who are receiving unemployment pay. This is not related to how many people are actually out of work and unemployed, just the count on how many people the state is paying money to. Once a person has received the maximum number of unemployed checks, they drop off the state's unemployed counts, and basically the state now treats them as now being employed, even though that is not really true. What they need to state if they want to say it correctly, "We are handing out unemployment check to 6.7% of our state population. There is an additional 8% we have stopped paying unemployment money to and they are still unemployed.
