Clinton: "Nobody Believes" Economy Is Coming Back "Because You Don't Feel It"

|

Former President Bill Clinton was in his home state of Arkansas today to campaign for Sen. Mark Pryor. At a rally in Conway, Clinton said, "the economy is coming back but nobody believes it yet because you don't feel it."

Clinton also touted his record as president.

"I don't expect anybody to vote on it or be happy because middle class incomes haven't risen, the average family is making less adjusted for inflation than they were the day I left office," he said.

FMR. PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: They are really running against the president, aren't they? They see these polls, the president is unpopular in Arkansas and, yeah, the economy is coming back but nobody believes it yet because you don't feel it. But remember what I said four years ago -- or two years ago -- in Charlotte. Financial crises take an average of 10 years to get over. We just crossed over and we're now creating more jobs above where we were before the crash.

Six years, four years ahead of the global average for 150 years we're doing better than that. I don't expect anybody to vote on it or be happy because middle class incomes haven't risen, the average family is making less adjusted for inflation than they were the day I left office. But I am telling you the truth, we are coming back.
