JUNEAU, Alaska- Alaska's unemployment rate remains steady and below the national average.

The national rate was 7 percent.
Last month, 26 of Alaska's 29 borough and census areas saw increases in the unadjusted unemployment rate.
Skagway had the highest unemployment rate at nearly 21 percent, while the City and Borough of Juneau had the lowest at 4.5 percent.

Is this the Obama/democrat math or is it legitimate? It has gotten so convoluted we really don't know anymore. While Mark Begich and his liberal minions have managed to shut down millions of work places, doubling welfare recipients, nearly tripling food stamp recipients and skyrocketing the cost of healthcare the media keeps lying to all of us about how wonderful things have gotten. To those lucid it's clear that this is the same as when Begich and his CFO cooked the books and left Anchorage drowning in debt for generations to come. Same scam bigger dollar amounts.
