    But what I never do is idiotically (as you often do) assume that the policies within the year are the cause. Largely because I understand how long bills take to become law. You on the other hand jump on anything that even looks remotely bad for Democrats.
    As I thought. There's no way you're going to post the U6 numbers for 2007 and 2008.

Yet, now they claim the bill was worthless. As such, they've done everything humanly possible to negate any job creation or economic recovery that could have come with it, i.e., trimming state budgets at the expense of public employees and all but forcing public employees into retirement because of the many bills passed that increased expenditures on public employees at a time they claim "the people can ill afford to pay higher taxes". Well, they can claim they didn't raise taxes on anybody and that would be correct. However, they've forced higher costs onto a certain segment of the economy and that IS having a negative impact on the overall economy.

    In short, by the states balancing their budgets on the backs of public employees, they are driving more people unto the unemployment rolls (retirements notwithstanding). I know of a few people who have lost their jobs because of statewide budget cuts and these were people who had been employed and doing good work for upwards of 10-12 years.

    We should just have a bake sale every Saturday, who would fight against that?

    Interesting. Between 8.0 and 13.7. 2007 was actually better then 2003.

    Not at all. I removed it from no context at all. The Democrats extended Republican tax cuts and you are blaming them for it. It's hilarious how you are so anti anything Democrats do, even when the acts are originally Republican. I guess if Democrats gave you a tax cut, you'd be against it purely because they were democrats.

    When you change the years in the little doo-hickie, it's a different story.

    You said: "There's no way you're going to post the U6 numbers for 2007 and 2008." Which I did. Proving you, as usual are wrong. You clearly must enjoy the taste of fail since you do it so often. But thanks for proving not only are you immune to shame but you have no problem with the fallacy of raising the bar. Honesty is not strong with you.

    And, you didn't. You posted from 2006 to 2007.

    This is what '07 to '08 looks like.
