    Not everything in the economy is static. You cannot simply hold one side of the equation constant and change around variables. There are gains from trade.

    The debt was much less then. Why won't the dems abide by the pay go law they passed? The GOP said use tarp funds why are the dems against that?

    why did dems whine about Bush's reckless spending with a GOP congress in 2005 but they support Obama's far more reckless spending with a dem congress in 2009?

    They did not want to stop it. They wanted it paid for so it would increase the debt. Why will the dems not abide by the pay go law they passed?

    Did you read the entire thing because it shows the government cooking the books on the U-6 table. They do no count all of the people because it states on page 8 for the U-6 table, "the number of persons seeking full time jobs, plus one-half the number of persons seeking part-time jobs, plus one-half the number of persons employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force less one-half of the part-time labor force." It must be nice to only count one-half of the people for three of the four categories listed.

    Can you guess why? By the way, can you guess how they figure U7 unemployment? Oh, and is U6 unemployment the official unemployment rate?

    It's the one you cited. I don't care why the government lies and cooks the books. I only care that it does. By using the real calculation for unemployment the rate goes up to 20-25% which is what I've said and used data to support this. You chose to disregard it and you choose to disregard the federal government admitting to cooking the books. Have a wonderful evening.
