There were more unemployed last month than the previous month and the labor force is still down 2 million from the beginning of the recession. Only a true ideologue buys the surface rhetoric and never explores the actual data.
    We see the same things, but I don't view them as having anything to do with liberal ideology. I see it as false "Confidence" building to keep the US currency value up and attempt to give faith to "full faith and credit" underpinning our financial system.. Phony Economic numbers are generated to boost "Confidence" and "Confidence" is reflected in stock, currency, futures, and commodities markets. Investors see the "Confidence" and ignore the realities of debt, crooked banking and an economy hostage to Big Energy and Capital interests.

    Exactly right, for if they aren't counted then they don't exist. 7.6% unemployment sounds a lot better than the 14.3% U-6 number. I always said that the more people Obama can get to drop out of the labor force the more he will tout the U-3 numbers.

    I'de be more interested if there was any indication from the Right that they care a hoot about the unemployed, discouraged or otherwise. They have blocked all efforts at job creation bills like infrastructure repair and history tells us that Democrats are far better at job creation than Republicans.
    I'm afraid we can look to your side for any reasons for the slow recovery of jobs. The failure to pass the American Jobs act stands out recently, but history is more telling. Republicans just don't want more jobs, it costs business money when unemployment is low.



    The American Jobs Act never became law, however, because Republicans opposed it from the start, blasting it as another form of “failed stimulus” that wouldn’t help the economy. (They ignored the fact that the first “failed stimulus,” the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, wasn’t a failure at all.) One month later, the GOP blocked the bill in the Senate, preventing the creation of more than a million jobs and the added growth that multiple economists predicted would occur if the bill passed:


    –Moody’s Analytics estimated the American Jobs Act would create 1.9 million jobs and add two percent to gross domestic product.

    –The Economic Policy Institute estimated it would create 2.6 million jobs and protect an addition 1.6 million existing jobs.

    –Macroeconomic Advisers predicted it would create 2.1 million jobs and boost GDP by 1.5 percent.

    –Goldman Sachs estimated it would add 1.5 percent to GDP.

    Seasonal adjustment is establishing zero, but in keeping with the joy of the left, I'll just take the 422,000 and consider the economy completely recovered. I promise not to tell the unemployed, the under employed and the economically dispossessed.

    Here we go again, same tired old rhetoric that you believe it is the government's job to create jobs vs creating the environment for the private sector to create jobs. Keep buying the rhetoric and ignoring the results. Who pays for those jobs after the initial govt. expenditures run out or do you even care?

    Obamacare=job killer
    Higher taxes=job killer
    More regulations=job killer

    Liberalism=job killer

    Harry never brought the President's proposals to the Senate floor, and you want to blame the minority party? That's a bit of a stretch. The President could have and should have worked where he could find agreement with the minority which is energy independence. Unfortunately, the President doesn't seem to have that goal as a priority, and his own party would probably have skewered him if he attempted. So, you see, this one way blame just doesn't fly anymore...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...
