I have posted those official numbers. You really ought to go to BLS. click on the home page and see all the information listed. It will certainly give you more credibility.

    I looked at the link, where did you get that so many discouraged workers left the workforce last month? I didn't see anything like that.

    If you go to the link, go down to discouraged workers it will give you the number by month. Be sure to look at the 2010 and 2011 numbers as well. You can put any date into the chart that you want

You then pointed to the 288,000 jobs created without posting the reality that we still have fewer people employed today than when the recession began. Must have been an oversight on your part because I certainly know you have higher expectations than your post would indicate.
    Is it just me or did the Republicans force the President to cut 1 million government jobs shortly after/during the Recession?

    Republicans did no such thing, states that require a balanced budget had to cut payroll. State jobs aren't Presidential responsibility and the federal govt. can print money, states cannot.

    Balanced budget?

    What a joke.

    Where can states get additional Credit from?

    Actually, I wouldn't say that. The recession put huge financial pressures on the states, so they had few options but to cut staff. Some of those jobs were kept (temporarily) by the stimulus. I'd also say that cuts due to the sequestration are kind of everyone's fault, maybe a bit more on the Republican side, but not that much greater than what would have resulted if they had cut a deal.

    Visbek.

    Come on. The States could have easily been given enough money by the Federal government to not cut Consumer Demand (read: Gov't jobs) in an already saturated Job Market.

    Sequestration was entirely Republican's faults. The Democrats did what they Politically had to do. No blame can be laid on them, you know besides NOT "accidentally" pushing a couple Tea Party loons off a few cliffs
