Employment figures from BLS B-1:

Jan 2002: 130,847,000 Start of conservative economic policy period
Dec 2009: 129,687,000 End of conservative economic period
Job created: (1,160,000) Great conservative job creation record
Missing: 2-million jobs/year for 8 years (new workers entering workforce)
Total jobs LOST due to failed conservative economic policies: 17,160,000
