While the jobs print was a positive surprise, it's important to consider the other end of that spectrum. Looking at just a jobs number is being selective in a big picture. The sad news, more people began using food stamps last quarter than the number of people who got new jobs.
Another problem (and not with any particular politician, but all policy makers in aggregate) is the uncertainty about tax situations, global uncertainties (especially Asia) have made businesses skittish about real wage increases, one of the pitfalls of the recent print. If I were any size business with the majority of my business in the U.S., I would be very skeptical investing in any major assets (restricting growth), and I would be keeping the size of my staff at a conservative level. Hopefully Tuesday relieves some of that
