recovery

"Recovery" and related terms ("recovering", "recover") have been used a total of 267 times by the politicians and political influencers that NPR is tracking.

Why We're Tracking This: When the unemployment rate's stuck between 9 percent and 10 percent, as it has been since mid-2009, you hear a lot about a "jobless recovery." The party out of power (Republicans) says it's the fault of those in charge (Democrats), while the Democrats say we're on the "road to recovery" and shouldn't shift into reverse by going back to GOP economic policies.
