    You still have not figured it out?

    It was your statement. I even gave you the correct phrasing to match what was in the report you incorrectly quoted from.

    Your response: Really? So that roughly 4-6% unemployment for 7.5 years out of his eight was pretty bad? And the roughly 8% unemployment throughout all of the Marxist's regime is no doubt much better, right?

    The highest unemployment rate during President Bush’s entire eight years in office was his last month at 7.8%, compared to President Obama’s low of 7.6%. Of course it really helps to have the state-run media on your side."

    Now my response to you: Anyone with half a brain knows that's misleading because that combines private and public sector jobs and proves that you did not address my response in any shape or form.

    Well then make the case that private jobs were dying before Obama. And if Obama is good for the nation why haven't those private jobs returned?

    By the way, since you are implying that you have more than half a brain just how many government jobs would it take in a pool of 155 million jobs, to significantly impact the percentages?

    I did and I never said Obama was good for the nation. I simply stated that low wage jobs are a bad trend for the nation.

    please learn what your taxes fund. Those items listed aren't federal expenses.

    This played out when Chile hit a financial crisis in 1982:

    The social policies of all three governments were formed by a
    particularly difficult beginning. The Chilean economy went through a deep financial crisis in 1982,
    similar in severity to Argentina’s crisis of 2001. In 1982 and 1983, Chile’s GDP fell by 16 percent.
    The collapse of the financial sector cost Chilean taxpayers between 30 and 40 percent of GDP.
    Unemployment shot up to 30 percent. Around 50 percent of the population fell below the poverty
    line. Extreme poverty affected 30 percent of the population.
    Starting in 1985, the focus of economic policies shifted toward financial solvency and
    economic growth. Exports grew rapidly and unemployment went down. On the poverty front,
    however, results were less successful. People living below the poverty line still represented 45
    percent of the population in 1987. Additionally, a key decision by the Pinochet government to
    reduce taxes and government expenditures in 1988 had a further negative impact in social policies.
    The decrease in social expenditures was equivalent to 3 percent of GDP, resulting in severe
    deterioration in the coverage and quality of public health services, lower wages for teachers, and
    lower pensions for the elderly. http://info.worldbank.org/etools/doc...%20Summary.pdf

    Please learn comprehension, since I made it clear that it was the federal government's job to provide stimulus to states and localities for this very reason.

    They lowered the unemployment rate by between
    0.1 percentage points and 0.8 percentage points
