    How is rebutting your claim that Obama was the primary cause of low participation "ducking" that "central" issue?

    Go ahead and repeat what you already said again and claim I am ducking it if you wish, but this consistently weird debate style is making you look really bad.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Why should they have increased at all? Would you care to address the 8:1 stated ratio and explain why UE has not decreased more than it has?

    You still don't understand.. He was simply saying that people retiring causes the LFPR to go up(DUH). Conservative has changed to using LFPR as a reliable metric to "combat" the fact that unemployment has been dropping...Hint--it's not a reliable metric for what you're trying to prove.

    I asked you a question. If you lack the ability to answer it, no point in questioning your way out of it. Just man up and admit your limitations.

    Here is the data: The total private employment level from trough to peak increased by about 4.3%.

    Let's try again! Had government employment increased in the same fashion, what would the current unemployment rate be today?

    The intent of that statistic is to hide the fact that Bush inherited a very low unemployment rate, benefited from the housing bubble, and ultimately trashed the economy as he doubled unemployment as he slithered out of DC after achieving the lowest JAR on record.

    Keep beating your head against the keyboard if you wish, but I'll ask again, why should government employment have increased and not decreased?

    Given the fact that you are questioning the validity of these numbers on the basis of "common sense", you are in no position to call foul on anyone else. Common sense is just your way of admitting you don't know what you are talking about.
