    It's not my opinion that we've lost private sector jobs, every month since the stimulus spending started.

    You argument, is just your opinion, supported by someone else's opinion.

    The Zyroh Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America: Government debt is directly proportional to the approval rate of congress.

    Call your local lobbyist (your congressman will just check with him anyway.)
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    Then you have no problem providing some kind of source. None the less, taking this comment at face value, it does not back your statements.
    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.

    You mean you aren't aware that we've lost jobs ever since Obama took office? really?

    Re: US Treasury asks Congress to lift debt ceiling

    Can Apdst identify when the stimulus package began, and when the rate of spending achived its absolute maximum?

    Look at the trajectory of job losses (the downward motion). Once stimulus spending began, the instantaneous rate of change (the derivative of the curve) began approaching zero. Once the derivative approaches zero, it is referred to as a relative extrema (max, min, or inflection).

    Here is what is interesting. When the derivative of stimulus spending began to approach zero, so did the derivative of job losses. A mere coincidence?

    Those are strictly private sector jobs and not a combination of private sector jobs and government jobs?

    How can that chart be accurate, if we've had negative job numbers since the stealfromus spending started?

    Care to address the content of my post?

    This represents the aggregate labor market. 297k private sector jobs were created in December 2010. 190k public sector jobs were lost.
