    Did the public sector lay off millions of people? Was it the public sector that could not fund their daily operations because of a credit constraint created by the public sector?

    No. The private sector failed as the bankruptcy tolls of 2008, 2009, and 2010 suggest.

    If this is the best you can offer, next time i think ill pass....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    There is a difference between a reason, and being at fault. The reason for high unemployment is that the private sector cannot supply enough jobs. That does not mean that the private sector is intentionally screwing the public, it's just part of a free market economy.

    Companies have bought out other companies instead of hiring workers. This has caused more workers to lose jobs (rightfully so). Companies are sitting on what trillions in reserves? What causes job growth again?

    the public sector has been shedding jobs faster than a german shepherd in summer---28000 this month, 24000 in april, 14000 in march, 30000 in february, 14000 in january, 10000 in december, 11000 in november, 8000 in october, 159000 in september (after the census), 121000 in august...

    fyi

    and THAT aspect of our emasculating economy, this severe slashing of public payroll, is only gonna get a whole lot worse starting just about now---ask cuomo in new york, moonbeam in CA, the state assemblies in massachusetts and springfield, bing and bobb in detroit...

    let alone the republican governors of ohio and wisconsin and florida and jersey and indiana...

    you may appreciate the need for austerity, you may oppose this anti-keynesian craze...

    but there's nothing anyone can to do stop it, as inevitable as physics

    Jobs for illegals must be getting tough to find now too. I mean there can't be but so many jobs that no one wants to do.

    Before the turn of the century, most of my life, the ratio has been about 1:1 job seekers to jobs available.
    But, what if the rate at which jobs became available was slower than the rate at which people became separated from their jobs?
    Could this have any impact on the situation?
    The BLS is still saying that there more people who are seeking work than there are jobs-- ~13.9mil competing for ~3.2mil jobs, ~4:1.
    I may be wrong.

    Proof that some on the right are dying for something to cry about.

    We spend too much!

    The public sector(ie the government) is reducing jobs!

    Which do you want, less government spending and as a result fewer public sector jobs, or more government spending for more government jobs?
