    How can you possibly call that an "improvement"?
    Last month's "trend" is not a measure of "2 years" of activity.

    a higher percentage of americans are working full time and a lower percentage of americans are underemployed and unemployed. In my opinion those are the numbers that matter.

    are you ever going to answer my question to you?

    Lets look at some numbers.

    In Jan 2009, when Obama took office, there were 31,983,716 Americans receiving food stamps, with a paid benefit of $ 3,633,188,682 that month.

    IN May 2012, there were 46,496,788 Americans receiving food stamps, with a paid benefit of $ 6,181,720,325.

    Do you have some other "improving" numbers ?

    Below defines the reason I have a problem using poll to define the issue.

    noun
    1. a sampling or collection of opinions on a subject, taken from either a selected or a random group of persons, as for the purpose of analysis.

    Hiya Gimmie

    Maybe folks are trying to stick to the thread topic and that's why they're ignoring you "dancing" around the facts.

    This is the trend that reflects the actual Job performance, not your biased cheerleading

    Can you refute the numbers they published? Or more directly, is there or is there not a higher percentage of adults in this country working full time? Has the percentage of under/unemployed American adults decreased?
