    No true at all. The amount of underemployed college grads is up over 10% since 2000. A significant jump considering the 1.5 million underemployed college grads.

    Please, even if we lower taxes business will not come back here. You and I both know that. They'll go to China where they can get cheap sweatshop labor and have the government turn a blind eye on people suffering. Corporations are just fine even with high taxes.

    If corporations were "just fine" what's up with the economy?

    EXCELLENT! You're finally getting it! THat's precisely the problem: INEQUALITY. Corporations and the super rich keep getting richer, but the workers, the middle class, etc. go no where ... in the 50s, CEOs made about 50 times more than their average worker ... now it's closer to 300-500 times ... Wal-Mart's CEO makes 1043 times the median wage of his workers (btw, the Wal-Mart median wage for a family of four is just below or just above the poverty threshhold) .... but good ... you're geting it ...

    Inequality? Really? How would you suggest the situation you describe be solved? Would you rather lower the reward for the successful to be more "equal" to the competency of those not succeeding or implement policies that allow for more success among everyone?
