Ted Cruz, R-TX
"Today, we have the lowest labor force participation since 1978. The official unemployment rate is 6.7 percent, but that doesn’t capture the millions who are underemployed. When we include them, the number rises to 12.7 percent. The rates of poverty in the United States are right now at historic highs—15 percent. As CNN recently noted, this is “the first time the poverty rate has remained at or above 15 percent 3 years running since 1965.”"
