Private Job Growth Occurs More Under Democrats

Bloomberg reports that almost two-thirds of private-sector job growth in the past five decades came with Democrats in the White House.

"The BGOV Barometer shows that since Democrat John F. Kennedy took office in January 1961, non-government payrolls in the U.S. swelled by almost 42 million jobs under Democrats, compared with 24 million for Republican presidents... Democrats hold the edge though they occupied the Oval Office for 23 years since Kennedy's inauguration, compared with 28 for the Republicans."
