    Private pay shrinks to historic lows

    Private pay shrinks to historic lows - USATODAY.com
    Paychecks from private business shrank to their smallest share of personal income in U.S. history during the first quarter of this year, a USA TODAY analysis of government data finds.

    At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010.
    Yep... it's "change" alright.

    Historic eeeeven.

    Change you can believe in.
    The one we have been waiting for.

    And he is now at 42%.

    Somehow, I think his teleprompteur is going to blame Bush 43 once again.

    Huh. During a recession we spend more on safety net programs and people get paid less.

    edit: Do you even understand the article you just read? This is completely predictable during a recession.

    Taxes are at historic lows!

    Americans' Tax Burden Near Historic Low - washingtonpost.com

    Which is, of course, also predictable during a recession, but I just thought I'd play along with the hyperbole.

    Ugh... did you notice that Obi has done exactly the opposite of what should have been done to strengthen the economy?

    The exact opposite.

    He owns the record for THE WORST... it is his and his doing.
    He's made another mark in the history books.

    That's what happens when the press defaults on its duty.
    You get an ignorant public whipped up into a Kool-Aid driven frenzy.

    Just think, a race baiting, terror buddying, no-vote, no-show community organizing Acorn loving Marxist in the IL and US Senate, with no private business experience was actually voted into The Office of The President of the United States with:

    Yes We can.
    Hope.
    Change.
    Unity, and la pièce de résistance is...

    We are the ones we have been waiting for.

    That's how you get record failure.

    EPIC FAILURE.

    that the Obama naysayers would post it without reading it was completely predictable

    Really that's funny because most economists agree the stimulus and bailouts were a necessary evil that prevented us from turning this recession into a depression. Perhaps you'd like to show some sort of evidence to support yet another blanket accusation that Obama is personally to blame for everything that is wrong in the universe?

    Most experts believed Obama would be a post racial president and good for America.
    My they were proven wrong in a hurry, weren't they?

    BTW... How much of that stimuli was put to use?

    End of story.

    President Obama's economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday.

    Well yeah, more people are unemployed. Of course more income will come from the government during at time like this. Hopefully, though, this thread shuts up those who say that the economy is recovering.

    Re: Private pay shrinks to historic lows

    I'll have an opinion once I grasp what a "private business" is considered to be.

    Maybe it's just my day - but this elludes me completely. "Private" as in serving one's personal needs - like self-employment by selling items on ebay? Or "private" as in "non-government" - or what?
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    ^^Non-government.
