    To bring the unemployment rate down to 6.5% in 18 months (which would initiate the Fed's tapering), job growth has to average 197,000 per month.
    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.

    Shouldn't be a problem, just keep having people drop out of the labor market and stop looking for jobs. A stagnant labor force is a liberal's dream

    Perhaps you can make a comment that isn't based on political vitriol?

    Perhaps you can address the stagnant labor force growth during the Obama term as well as the high numbers of discouraged workers during his term? Trumpeting 195000 jobs created without context is what ideologues do. How anyone can continue to support this empty suit is beyond comprehension.

    Obviously Obama doesn't care and that is what matters. The more people who drop out of the labor market the lower the unemployment rate will go and that seems to be good enough for ideologues like you.

    So now, suddenly, Obama, the socialist, has become...one of you?

    It is amazing how far some will twist their argument.
