The real reason for the weak gains is that the governemt has is stealing too much from working taxpayers and doing a wonderful job of flooding the US labor market with cheap foreignlabor which of course is resposible for competion for US jobs with stagnant wages/benefits. Strib is Minnesota PRAVDA for Obama.

So we had a a 15% shutdown for 15-days and now you are gonna blame the lame numbers on the Fed Shutdown? Quit lying to yourself and to the American people.

Most businesses do not rely on federal money and, in fact, they KNOW that THEY will be the ones Democrats come after to finance all that deficit spending and welfare programs. Welfare recipients and unionized government workers and union workers working on wasteful government projects like that idiotic Minneapolis to St. Paul light rail do. FACT: 77% of all jobs created in America from January 2013 through the end of July 2013 have been PART-TIME and relatively LOW-PAYING. But don't worry, Democrats have a plan: steal money from people who earn it and give it to other people without making them lift a finger for it. Yeah, welcome to welfare America. Obama added 20 million to food stamps since he became President, most of the able-bodied. Why work and contribute to the economy when you can sit back and let Democrats buy your vote???
