    Percentage change is listed on the various charts whether it be state, local, or federal, but you can put those charts into a excel spreadsheet and create your own percentage change for whatever you want. click on the excel command and the chart will be put into excel.

    so it's a coincidence that the month to month growth dropped just as spending cuts were coming into effect?

    Right, Superman never failed and Obama continues to fail. Amazing how he had Congress for two full years and generated job losses, declining labor force, and fewer jobs which of course supporters ignore. He is incompetent and a failure.

    Jobs have been lost since he took office so not sure what you are looking at. 142.2 people employed in January 2009 and 139.6 million in August 2011

    Well I told you what I'm looking at, specifically a dip in job creation the last 4 months, coinciding with GOP pushing for spending cuts. Really do try to pay attention.

    U-6 unemployment is in percentages and take that percentage times the number of people in the labor force, 153 million plus

    One of the reasons the jobs report is so bad is because state and local governments are shedding jobs.
    Two more months like we had in August and Obama will be sporting a net gain in job growth in the private sector. Ironic part that most of the job loses under Obama are public sector jobs. Employment numbers are down 600,000 in the private sector (August increased 300+K) but down 2 million in the pulic sector.

    I miss the Conservatives who promoted smaller government.

    So you think it is the role of govt. to create private sector jobs? Spending isn't necessary, incentive is, lower taxes, fewer regulations, and eliminate uncertainty. If a business fails they go out of business, if the govt. fails it prints more money.

    Better sell that to the Administration that doesn't believe it. 142.2 employed when he took office and 139.6 million today. I don't see 2.6 million jobs being created in the next two months, do you?

    What I'm saying is that spending cuts have a negative effect on the economy. Right now, the last thing we need is anything that has a negative effect on the economy. We have some of the lowest taxes since WWII, I don't think taxes are the issue. Bush and the GOP spend most of the last decade dismantling regulations or disregarding them by staffing industry people in oversight boards (something Obama's not much better at.) I don't think less taxes or regulations are really going to help much, here. But cutting spending WILL hurt the economy.
