    The BLS doesn't give percentages, so your data is suspect.

    It also coincided with the winding down of stimulus funds ... which we all know did nothing.

    Not at all, spending cuts put fiscal responsibility back into the govt. and means less money spent on debt service when you lower the deficit and thus not increase the debt much. That way you don't need more tax revenue and that is good for business.

    To quote the resident liberals here, causation does not equal correlation.

    He's not Superman like you, able to take on 5 posters at once. He can't save everyone. And until Republicans took over the House and drove recovery to a grinding halt, he made 29 million underemployed, 25 million underemployed.
