    Rick Perry, net job gain, increasing labor force, more jobs today than when Obama took office, and a two year balanced budget; Barack Obama net job loss, declining labor force, less people working, and 4 trillion ADDED to the debt.

    Odd isn't it though the unemployment rate has gone on his tenure?

    He could do what Obama has done, reduce the labor force and reduce that number from the unemployed to make the rate better. Is that what you are proposing?

    Do you have any idea how unemployment rate is calculated?

    False!

    Obama has not reduced the labor force and has not reduced the number from the unemployed to make the rate better.

    Yes i do.
    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.

    Well I guess Obama could double the unemployment rate like what has happened on Perry's watch.

    Do you have any idea how unemployment rate is calculated?
    Sure do you? Do you understand how there can be a net job gain yet still have a rising unemployment rate?

    Do you understand the impact of a rising population on a water poor state?

    Pretty simple comparison

    Rick Perry, net job gain, increasing labor force, more jobs today than when Obama took office, and a two year balanced budget; Barack Obama net job loss, declining labor force, less people working, and 4 trillion ADDED to the debt.
    The difference is that I prefer to consider cause and effect while you concern yourself only with effect ... or rather those effects that support your preordained conclusions.

    Yes i do.
    wrong? LOL, in 1994 the Bureau of Labor Statistics created the Discouraged worker class and eliminated that number from the labor force and the unemployment number. I believe it was 1994 because that is the first year it appears on BLS and is a way of showing lower unemployment not to be confused with U-6. Obama economic policies have led to people dropping out of the labor force in record numbers which is why U-6 is so high and the labor force dropping, or so it seems.

    If you know how the unemployment rate is calculated then you would know what affect discouraged workes has on that rate.

    Let me remind you

    Rick Perry, net job gain, increasing labor force, more jobs today than when Obama took office, and a two year balanced budget; Barack Obama net job loss, declining labor force, less people working, and 4 trillion ADDED to the debt.

    I have seen no evidence that you consider cause and effect because you don't hold Obama economic policy responsible for anything

    I have seen no evidence that you have a clue, rising unemployment rate is product of the rising labor force because of people moving to TX. The fact that Perry has a net job gain however speaks volumes even though currently the jobs cannot keep up with the labor force increase but will catch up quickly as more and more businesses flock to TX. Let Obama raise taxes on business and see what happens. Businesses are going to pay those higher taxes but look to lower state tax locations to move their business to offset that tax rate. Right to work states are going to boom. Bring it on, Barack

    Sure I do. As I've explained to you many times, Obama's stimulus significantly improved employment and GDP through '09-10, and Obama's decision to bail out the auto industry was critical in propping up the economy. He should be pressing for more short-term stimulus and deeper long-term spending cuts.
