BUT, telling the difference is difficult. The Democrats have had uninterrupted control of Congress since the end of 2006, when unemployment was only 4.6% for the year. For 2007, when they took control of Congress it was 5.8, rising to 9.3 after their next year in control of the government purse strings. Republicans, of course, controlled the White House, but the Democrats in Congress are at least partially to blame as well.
And historically, party in control of Congress has shown to have a reasonably good relationship to unemployment.
