    but as an economist the only difference between reich and krugman is the former didn't blame mrs alaska for the gabby giffords shooting

    stay up
    yes, soooo unaccomplished
    you recognize him as the secretary of labor during the clinton administration
    let's see how well our economy performed when he was at the helm of labor:
    * Strong Economic Growth: Since President Clinton and Vice President Gore took office, economic growth has averaged 4.0 percent per year, compared to average growth of 2.8 percent during the Reagan-Bush years. The economy has grown for 116 consecutive months, the most in history.
    * Most New Jobs Ever Created Under a Single Administration: The economy has created more than 22.5 million jobs in less than eight years—the most jobs ever created under a single administration, and more than were created in the previous 12 years. Of the total new jobs, 20.7 million, or 92 percent, are in the private sector.
    * Median Family Income Up $6,000 since 1993: Economic gains have been made across the spectrum as family incomes increased for all Americans. Since 1993, real median family income has increased by $6,338, from $42,612 in 1993 to $48,950 in 1999 (in 1999 dollars).
    * Unemployment at Its Lowest Level in More than 30 Years: Overall unemployment has dropped to the lowest level in more than 30 years, down from 6.9 percent in 1993 to just 4.0 percent in November 2000. The unemployment rate has been below 5 percent for 40 consecutive months. Unemployment for African Americans has fallen from 14.2 percent in 1992 to 7.3 percent in October 2000, the lowest rate on record. Unemployment for Hispanics has fallen from 11.8 percent in October 1992 to 5.0 percent in October 2000, also the lowest rate on record.
    * Lowest Inflation since the 1960s: Inflation is at the lowest rate since the Kennedy Administration, averaging 2.5 percent, and it is down from 4.7 percent during the previous administration.
    * Highest Homeownership Rate on Record: The homeownership rate reached 67.7 percent for the third quarter of 2000, the highest rate on record. In contrast, the homeownership rate fell from 65.6 percent in the first quarter of 1981 to 63.7 percent in the first quarter of 1993.
    * 7 Million Fewer Americans Living in Poverty: The poverty rate has declined from 15.1 percent in 1993 to 11.8 percent last year, the largest six-year drop in poverty in nearly 30 years. There are now 7 million fewer people in poverty than there were in 1993.

    Was that suppose to be a point by refutation of his career? You keep sniping at Reich but what exactly is your point?

    of course we would not expect you to be acquainted with such things:
    # ^ Time's List of Top 10 Cabinet Members Robert Reich - Top 10 Best Cabinet Members - TIME
    # ^ The most influential business thinkers, according to a Wall Street Journal ranking Quest for Innovation, Motivation Inspires the Gurus - WSJ.com

    Time? HA! Next thing you'll tell me is that Salon.com likes Clinton.

    Point is that you libs are putting up the echo chamber to back your own narratives, it is laughable really.

    Actually, the WSJ Op Ed pages are notoriously right leaning, which is not to say that liberal viewpoints haven't been published, however, their hard news dept is no different than say NYT.

    Re: Judge issues temporary order barring public union law's implementation

    Republicans in the Ohio House on Wednesday approved a bill that would restrict collective bargaining rights for the state’s public sector unions.

    The bill passed 53 to 44; no Democrats voted in favor of the bill, while 5 Republicans voted against it. The legislation has already passed the state Senate once and would need just one more expected approval before heading to Republican Gov. John Kasich’s desk, perhaps before the end of the day.

    Kasich indicated earlier Wednesday that he plans to sign the measure into law.

    Re: Judge issues temporary order barring public union law's implementation

    today:

    CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer has learned exclusively some of the fire houses on Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s chopping block. Some say shutting them down could put your safety at risk.

    Twenty fire companies are on death row including, sources said, Engine 271 in Bushwick. And unless there’s a last-minute reprieve communities all across the city could be in danger.

    from athens to sacto, a tsunami of austerity

    there's no stopping it

    what's the loss of tens, even hundreds of thousands of public sector JOBS gonna do to our unemployment figures

    and how are the unions to compete when their membership dues are SLASHED

    worry
