Video: Biden Admits Job Numbers Not Accurate

Saturday, 31 Oct 2009 12:31 PM

On the same day that the Obama administration claimed that nearly 650,000 jobs had been saved or created under President Barack Obama's economic stimulus plan, Vice President Joe Biden told a slightly different tale.

"We know this is not 100 percent accurate," he said. "Further updates and corrections are going to be needed."

Speaking Friday during an appearance with California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, Biden admitted that the government's jobs statistics are nothing more than an approximation.

But Biden tried to put the best spin on the situation, saying "My message today is we're on track" and that "there is more help on the way."
