    Sorry but it is a waste of time discussing economic issues with someone who doesn't have a clue how our economy works and has no problem four years after the end of the recession with the economic numbers we have today. Such low expectations must be an example of a liberal's personal success.

    Well that is what Texas does and boosts it has a wonderful record of job creation.

    is it better to have one person working a 40 hour week with benefits like insurance or two persons working 20 hours a week with no benefits? only democrats would want two at 20 with no benefits so more will be dependent on the government

    That was a sly little personal attack there. Well...you actually used the word "personal" in the sentence...so maybe it wasn't so "sly". Stop being a crybaby. Point, Counter Point. Use Facts. State some basic or complex political/economic opinion. Stay on Topic.

    Simple enough rules to follow one would think.

    Now how about context, 6 trillion added to the debt and these are the numbers you are proud of? You think someone in the private sector would still have a job generating these kind of numbers at a cost of over 6 trillion added to the debt? Leadership and accountability aren't something you understand?

    You don't get to play both side of the same argument.

    Right here, in this thread:

    According to you, he had no effect upon the recession, he had no responsibility for the recession.

    At some point, reality will sink in. Complete, "full time" employment is over. Just as Americans once worked 10-12 hours per day 6-7 days per week as a norm, so to will the norm of the 5 day, 35-45 hour per week norm die.

    30 hours is the target set by the health care law. 30 hours per week is the new full time. Increases to minimum wage will be made to accommodate for the lack of hours.
