Washington, April 16 (ANI): President Obama's top economic advisors Timothy Geithner has rubbished claims by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney that American women accounted for 92 percent of jobs loss under Obama's leadership.
He said the claim made by the GOP presidential candidate was ridiculous and misleading.
Geithner described the quality of political debate on economic policy as 'really terrible' this year.
According to the Los Angeles Times, he also said that it was wrong to state that women were suffering the brunt of a weak economy.
The broadside came after a week in which the two campaigns had traded barbs over which candidate was more supportive of working women.
Politifact, a nonpartisan fact-checking organization, has rated Romney's claim that 92 percent of job losses have hit women as 'mostly false'.
Polls have shown a sizable gender gap, with Obama far more popular among women than Romney. Romney was more popular among men.
White House Director for the National Economic Council Gene Sperling said that even though the number of job creation in March was lower than expected, the economy was adding jobs at a faster pace than it did last year, when 2.1 million private-sector jobs were created.
Republican leaders rejected that assessment, arguing that Obama had failed to do enough to rejuvenate the economy. (ANI)
