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.

Further, Boomers typically don't come from single child families. This means births extending into the early '50's.

So when shown how utterly absurd your last comment was, you decide to move the goalposts, and in the process, rendered your last post even more dumb than it was previously (as, according to you, this is now a "bad" jobs report, thus ruining your earlier assertion the books are cooked before an election to provide good news...and to prove this "bad" report, you use the source you claim is inaccurate).
I swear the anti-Obama crowd are some of the most illogical (and most transparent) people I've ever seen.
But of course your goal isn't factual analysis, but partisan whining.
The fact that this jobs report is bad (imo - all extra employed are teenagers and over 55 PLUS 82K less 20-54 employed PLUS average hourly wage dropped) in no way proves that the numbers were not 'cooked' (nor does it prove the opposite).
How do you know the numbers were not truly horrible and the BLS was not instructed to cook the books to make the Dem's look good for the midterm elections and that these (imo) bad numbers were as far as the BLS agreed to exaggerate?
I assume you don't (just as I cannot prove that they were cooked).
