    The fact that you even have to point to a past report because you know there is nothing good about today's jobs report is telling. It's an absolute disaster and it's only going to get worse. GDP Growth last quarter was .4%. The quarter before that it was initially in the negative but it was "revised" to .1%.

    Upwards actually, to 148k. February's figures were revised upwards as well to 268k.

    The .4 figure is the final revision for Q1, which was initially reported as a tenth percent decline. The previous quarter you're referencing was in fact a 3.1 percent gain.

    And just what does the private sector know how to do? Please quantify your statement.

    Why isn't the private sector doing it as we speak?

    Also, what percentage of the U.S. economy is made up by oil and NG production?
    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.

    For states as well? Gov. Snyder cut business taxes in Michigan and our unemployment has gone down drastically.
