    You are not a fiscal conservative. Fiscal conservatives do not support giant government social programs that add one trillion dollars to the deficit.

    Calling Obama a "radical leftist" is like calling Bush a radical rightist. It puts you squarely in the nutter category. Sorry...
    He is a statist and a collectivist. That makes him a radical leftist.

    A fiscal conservative could support a giant government program that provides the same services to the American public for a lower overall cost (versus private industry)!

    Obama's HC bill won't lower the overall costs one bit. It'll just shift them onto the American taxpayer.

    What is typical is the fact that once again liberals don't get it and never will. 36,000 more Americans lost their jobs and another 140,000 Americans dropped out of the labor force. Isn't that wonderful? It is a great day in America according to Harry Reid as we has spent almost 2 trillion dollars and all we have to show for it is a reported 15 million unemployed Americans, a true unemployment rate of 16.8% but liberals spin this positively. Is there any wonder that liberals today have zero credibility.

    U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

    what this is showing is that growing the public sector doesn't solve the unemployment problem nor does it grow the economy enough to reduce the deficit by creating jobs.

    When we're at 9.7 in June, I wonder if they'll blame the heat.

    Probably as this Administration is good at blaming everyone else but themselves.

    The percentage isn't a valid issue, the total number of unemployed including those dropping out of the work force is the issue. The 9.7% is based upon a lower workforce base due to people actually dropping out of the labor market.

    Going to the BLS.gov website, clicking on unemployment, then at the bottom of the page click on labor force statistics. That is the key page to do research. There is a section there called discouraged workers and it shows the number of people dropping out of the labor force. those are truly unemployed people. There are now another 1.2 million people that dropped out of the labor force that should be added to the roles of the unemployed. That would make the real rate 16.8%.

    You won't see any Obama supporter touch this issue.
