The Bush Administration has released a 412 page "Economic Report of the President" which states that the economy has recovered after an internet stock bubble in 2000, 9-11, two wars, corporate accounting scandals, and a recession.
A year ago, unemployment was rising and economy recovery was slow. The Bush report says that in 2004 2.6 million jobs will be created and there will be a 4% growth rate. Bush attributes his tax cut with stimulating economic growth.
Democrats are quick to point out that 2.2 million payroll jobs have been lost since Bush became President. Candidate John Kerry says of the last 11 presidents, Bush has the worst record when it comes to creating jobs.
