You suggested it was part of our economic recession.The original point was about the immediate effect it had. No one said 'permanent' that your refer to.
Painfully obvious I would say, its why people are protesting all over the country.Ambigious.
I am not talking about me, I am talking about the middle class.Me too for 32yrs but it worked for me. What did you do wrong?
By restoring some of the progressivity of income taxes, that doesn't tax income by the wealthy at a lower tax rate than the middle class.But...wealth is not taxed in this country. How will this pay for the increase in public employees?
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
The Marxist won. Job losses continued at very high numbers for another four months.
We know it is possible to use a graph to mislead, to lie, to manipulate. This graph is evidence.
Here Marxist guy:
It's official: U.S. in a recession since December 2007 - Dec. 1, 2008
The recession began in Dec 2007.It's official: Recession since Dec. '07
The National Bureau of Economic Research declares what most Americans already knew: the downturn has been going on for some time.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The National Bureau of Economic Research said Monday that the U.S. has been in a recession since December 2007, making official what most Americans have already believed about the state of the economy .
The NBER is a private group of leading economists charged with dating the start and end of economic downturns. It typically takes a long time after the start of a recession to declare its start because of the need to look at final readings of various economic measures.
The NBER said that the deterioration in the labor market throughout 2008 was one key reason why it decided to state that the recession began last year.
Employers have trimmed payrolls by 1.2 million jobs in the first 10 months of this year. On Friday, economists are predicting the government will report a loss of another 325,000 jobs for November.
*Edit to add:
And oh my god, wouldn't you know, the graph you are complaining about began that very next month. Wow, what a coincidence.

Isn't that your entire argument? A conspiracy theory? That some giant cabal of businessmen thought, "Like, oh my god, Obama might get elected, let's fire some people". And your amazing ability to read one chart has led you to this belief, despite not one other person ever claiming it? Seriously, cite me a source in June of '08 that says, "Jobs being lost because Obama might get elected", and I'll leave the thread.conspiracy theory
a theory that explains an event as being the result of a plot by a covert group or organization; a belief that a particular unexplained event was caused by such a group.
the idea that many important political events or economic and social trends are the products of secret plots that are largely unknown to the general public.

What did the graph, shown the way it was shown tell you? Was this recession deeper or did it come on more swiftly that the earlier recession?
Or did it just paint a picture that we can spend a few trillions of dollars and save public sector union jobs for about a year?

This is ridiculous that you are allowed to troll this thread with such inane arguments. You make Conservative look like he has a PhD in Statistics.
