    Unfortunately for the country, economic recovery doesn't fit in there because economic recovery depends of more people having the freedom...and responsibility...to make their own decisions. That's pretty much the opposite of what the Democrats want.

    What was the sort of for, exactly? Sorry I am confused. You seem to be restating exactly what I said.

    Yours was incomplete. Part time for economic reasons also includes those who have a full time job, but whose hours were cut.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

Those who latch onto this figure to the exclusion of all others do so for strictly political purposes.
    How about the figure of over 90 million Americans not in the work force?

    What about it? The number of those not in the workforce has increased alongside the the population for the last 25 years without interruption.

    It's quickly approaching a third of all Americans. Never been that high in my lifetime until Barack "Hussein" Obola came along.

    I have. The current participation rate is higher than any time before 1978.
    And it's been going down since 2000

    What about it? Surely you don't think everyone should be in the Labor Force?
