    PS..note: A consistent negative component....is lowered govt spending.....which is what you guys want. So if you want lower GDP, keep pushing for less govt spending....especially in a recession.

    Do you know what the term under employed means? Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Are under employed adults?

    Right, 1.5% GDP growth, 5.4 trillion added to the debt, and 23 million unemployed/under employed Americans is great news

    Its enemic. Its below what we need to just to keep up with population growth. Household incomes have fallen while you cite "growth".

    Further, someone noted that a greater percentage of Americans have jobs. Since when ? Since Obama took office ? Nope. There are approximately 3 less Americans per 100 working now than when he was sworn in.

    Food stamps up 42% as well.

    And I gave you the percentage of underemployed adults and showed you that number getting slowly better since 2010

    So what evidence do you have that Gallup is more accurate then the official government numbers?

    I stated it. And I also put right in my postings that it has been improving since 2010.

    government to my knowledge does not publish the % of adult working full time.

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


    Tango anyone.
    Well that is a stupid comment....since I was directly responding to one of your posts.
