SUMMER O' RECOVERY 5: Grand total of ZERO states where percentage of employed people has risen since '08

From a surprisingly candid Washington Post comes this confessional regarding the utter failure of Obamanomics:

From 2007 to 2014, the employment rate among 25- to 54-year-olds has declined in the United States by 3.5 percent, and no state reported employment gains during that time, according to data released by the Pew Charitable Trust on Tuesday.

The state with the largest decline is New Mexico, where 9.2 percent fewer people are employed today than they were in 2007. Vermont and Nebraska had the smallest decline, both less than 1 percent, and 19 other states had declines that were determined to be not statistically significant.

Serious question for you progressives out there: can you think of one thing in this country that's gotten better since Barack Obama first took his oath of office?

Lets hope that at least Obama's golf game has improved since he became President. If not, then absolutely nothing has improved since he took office.
