    You asked why does the blame fall on one man - I merely pointed out that lots of idiots around here pointed out the blame belonged to one man for years.

    How many of these people are unemployed by choice? 2.8 million people are sitting on their arses and collecting federal "long term unemployment" benefits for starters.

    I"m in college and I can tell you that well over 2/3rds of students would not BE students, were it not for school loans and grants. Many are just praying that the job market is better by the time their loans and grants run out. You CAN push those about 200k, did you know that? spread over 8 years. post grad loans and grants can be over 40k per year.

    So 20% of all families have no employment from any member.



    What is more concerning is how the numbers didn't hardly change from 2012 data, yet we are constantly being told the "recovery" is working. Unless the numbers of single workers is drastically higher, I see nothing changed in terms of "recovery". So how are the employment numbers?

    The government tells us that the official unemployment rate is about 7 percent, but that number is almost meaningless at this point.

    A number that is much more useful is the employment-population ratio. According to the employment-population ratio, the percentage of working age Americans that actually have a job has been below 59 percent for more than four years in a row. Yeah, great recovery.

    Throw em all out of office. Corrupted congress has led us down a bad path.
    Under that definition of "family" (household of two or more persons related by birth, marriage or adoption) that may include an 80 year old couple. What percentage of retired, elderly couples does one expect to have an employed family member?

    Like when he invaded Iraq or after the financial collapse when he asked Congress for TARP? Yep Bush did it. The question is what did Obama do?
