    LOL....the private sector is not keeping up with current public employment cuts....and you want more of that....on top of federal employment cuts....and yet....you complain about the unemployment numbers!

    Not correct. The gov't job loss is comming at the state/local levels due to the tax base dropping BECAUSE of Obamanomics, decreasing THEIR property and income tax revenue. Borrow and spend (Obamanomics) has SOARED at the federal level. Federal gov't has had job growth and HUGE spending increases (20% over that of Bush) and has DOUBLED the deficit, that Obama promised to cut in HALF. Cuts in FEDERAL spending are required, as well as the endless "unfunded mandates" like PPACA and EPA regulations that destroy opportunity for private job growth. Obama has NEVER been up for "shrinking gov't" as you could plainly see from where the "stimulus" money ACTUALLY went, to unions, both public and private, with a whopping 6% for those ALWAYS mentioned "shovel ready" infrastructure jobs.

    Don't know, but as of today, it doesn;t seem like it. It was growing before he took office. There's an CNN article talking about it growing early in his presidency, and they note he largely took that over. However, recent:

    On Friday, after the jobs report, we pointed out how the #1 killer of jobs in America is retrenched government spending, and we put up a chart showing how the number of government workers has declined under Obama.

    Because you said you would not hire the long term unemployed.....but now you are concerned about their number.

    As usual, it makes no sense.

    Apparently, the numbers released today are more positive than negative. The market rose 217 points today and futures are up 224 points. This means that what happened was good, not bad.

    BY all means support that. But, you're saying you love large state government? And don't most government employees work at the state level? Decreasing federal influence means losing state jobs. Isn't that also correct?

    You know the answer, that wasn't the point, the point was you want less of them, less state/local workers when the existing unemployed can't find jobs.

    You are arguing for GREATER unemployment.

    I answered you. Now I await you answering me.

    The job loss is coming from the public sector. Something you want, smaller government. The job growth is in the private sector, also something you want. So under Obama. you're getting what you thinkis best. Right?
