Chris Coons' Growing Unemployment Problem

If Chris Coons was such a great leader then why does the New Castle have the highest unemployment rate amongst the other three counties?

But the unemployment picture is worse given that in 2009, unemployment was 8.1; 4.9 in 2008 and and 3.5 in 2007.  Clearly, New Castle County's job losses are getting worse each year.  Take a look at this graph, courtesy of the Delaware Department of Labor:

Compared to Kent County, which has 8.3%, and Sussex which registers at 7.7; New Castle County comes in at 8.4%.  New Castle County may have a larger population, but the county also has more employers for workers to see employment.  And that paints a bleak picture compared to the rose-colored glasses Chris Coons uses in stump speeches all across the state.

  1. Shame on you Chris Coons...why don't you tell the people of delaware how Chrysler, GM and Valero all closed up shop, on your watch, without you lifting a FINGER to stop them from going? Why don't you tell them how Dupont has scaled back operations and moved out of state under YOUR so-called leadership?
