    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.

    Still not 91 million. Will you admit your error?

    The U-6 was what was being referred to, all along.

    U6 is not 91 million. You are off by 64%.

    You fail.

    91 million unemployed.

    You also said it didn't count elderly or children (which it clearly did).

    Oh, I definitely agree! The facts and data speak for themselves, especially when the information is coming from the government itself, and the trend is heading in the wrong direction. Flowery rhetoric has its place, but most people do not cheerlead a failure.
