    The report I posted showed that by any measurement there is less employment today than February 2009, your link did not work.

    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 no link in that. And with your record of confusing things like nominal and real numbers your cred is about that of a Nigerian lottery.

    It is a discrepancy between seasonal and non seasonal adjustment. Seasonal adjustment is important when comparing ratio's i.e. the unemployment rate.

    Now let the new argument begin!
    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.
