    He had it right.
    Now there are TWO people who think the President is inaugurated in March, not January? Wow.

    Did you last read the Constitution in 1932 or something?

    I would love to see some real tax cuts. I like these because it highlights that social security is just one more welfare program.

Those dropping out of the labor force aren't counted period in the U-3 number and apparently in your world don't matter. Those dropping out of the labor force are captured in the u-6 number but apparently you are hoping for more of them since they aren't unemployed, aren't counted, the unemployment number looks better.

    So you think cutting SS and Medicare funding is a tax cut? SS and Medicare aren't long term obligations for the govt? They are an expense and cutting their funding means those IOU's have to be repaid with borrowed or printed dollars.

    You're struggling to find relevance?

    So it all revolves around the BS elections?
