Jack Welch says unemployment numbers are cooked
Jack Welch, former head of General Electric and , seems to believe that the risible drop in the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ unemployment rate was caused by some manipulated stats or intimidation from the Obama Administration.
The numbers are bad enough, trust me. Welch is no fan of the Obama Administration. On CNBC’s “Squawk Box” not long ago, Welch said. “It’s so clear, it’s so simple. The Republicans should be winning this election and with this economy, this situation. It’s frightening.”
And here’s what Jack had to tweet today:
Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers

Hilda Solis, the country’s first anti-job Labor Secretary responded on CNBC, saying, “It’s really ludicrous to hear that kind of statement. We have to look at across the board, not just one month.”
