    Bake sales and other school sponsored fundraisers that sell unhealthy foods could be limited under the legislation, which only allows them if they are infrequent. The Agriculture Department would determine how often they could be held. Public health advocates pushed for the language, saying they are concerned about daily or weekly fundraisers that allow children to substitute junk food for a healthier meal

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.
    So then explain the democrats and Obama extending the tax cuts.

    No you are saying the tax cuts are bad. So why did the democrats extend them and why do you not blame them like you do Bush?

    Interesting. Between 8.0 and 13.7. 2007 was actually better then 2003.
    Huh. Looks like I did post the highest U6 number between 2007 and 2008.

    This is what '07 to '08 looks like.

    How is it to constantly cherry pick your information?
    It's hilarious how you first read my post, say I didn't post the relevant data and then provide a link with the exact number I said was in 2008. You don't fact check. If you did, you would have realized that I in fact DID reference 2008.

    Yeah, I don't like that as much as when the libs start using the supposedly cute little name calling either.....But I guess it goes both ways eh?
