    At least 698,000 but that number is subjective

    Why should that be a concern for any civil Person in our republic?

    Why is this a political issue in any at-will jurisdiction?

    Why is any data important in your world? After all liberals don't like measurement of any kind unless it is positive information that they can use as propaganda. One of these days you may get a job in the private sector and then you will understand why data is important.

    That, specific data, only tells me that the concept of employment at will is more political than legal, in our political-economic reality in nature.

    Yes, you did. You even pointed out how people are not forced to buy insurance, which was the tax.
    The fact they are allowed to pay the tax proves they are not forced to have insurance. This is really simply stuff.

    I never left the topic.
    That's correct, I cannot provide proof of something which did not happen because no one can prove something which never happened and asking someone to prove something which never happened is simply asinine.

    So is there a reason you're asking an irrelevant question which no one can answer?
    The reason I asked my question should be obvious...to take credit for something when there is NO factual roof that it actually has performed any better then another course of action would have is, IMO, foolish.
    Especially when the result is still relatively high unemployment, a stock market utterly addicted to QE/'artificially' low interest rates and still one huge deficit after another.


    Anyway, thank you again for answering my question...my interest in this matter with you is finished for now as further discussion would inevitably result in pointless back-and-forth opinions.

    Good day.

    Right, an average of 950,000 discouraged workers each month is nothing more than a number to you, and certainly not actual people. Data reflects human being and human activity thus measures actual performance.

    Yes, it is merely politics as usual. We should be actually solving simple poverty instead of just playing at politics as usual.
