Well, part of the problem with jobs has been the shrinking of our government. Employers added 163,000 more jobs in the month of july than there were in the month of june. Unfortunately, there were 9,000 fewer government jobs for that same time period. The mantra of "smaller government" is one of the main factors in the unemployment numbers being low.
Maybe if the GOP leadership in congress and the senate can focus on bills that help the economy rather than continually voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act or to limit abortions, or any of the other social legislation they have been pushing. How about some focus on what they say is their strength, the economy.
