    [QUOTE=Whovian;1059325609]Gallup says 10.3%
    BLS says 9.7%
    The Obama administration says 8.9% Gov. Report puts unemp rate at 8.9%

    Dana pointed out that the Obama and the BLS data is identical (Obama is citing BLS). Furthermore, Gallup is merely a prediction based on a poll.

    U6 stands at 15.9% seasonally adjusted.

    someone is lying.
    Neither. Gallup is just an opinion poll.

    That so called tax cut for the rich was passed prior to the Republicans taking control of the House but then you never let facts get in the way of your rants.

    "During a press conference moments ago, President Obama explained his decision to concede to Republican demands to extend the Bush tax cuts to those who make more than $250,000 by comparing congressional GOP to hostage-takers: "It's tempting not to negotiate with hostage takers, unless the hostage gets harmed...The hostage was the American people."

    Last week, Democratic senator Bob Menendez said that negotiating with Republicans on tax cuts is "almost" like negotiating with "terrorists." At the time, the harsh analogy--long favored by left-wing bloggers--seemed like it may have been an unbecoming slip-of-the tongue for the Democratic senator, but President Obama's remarks indicate that comparing Republicans to hostage-takers is now an official Democratic talking point."
    Obama Compares Republicans to Hostage-Takers | The Weekly Standard



    "The House of Representatives voted 234 to 188 Thursday to permanently extend the Bush tax cuts on incomes up to $250,000. Also included in the bill were a two-year delay of the Alternative Minimum Tax, an elimination of the marriage penalty tax, and permanent increases to the child tax credit and the earned-income tax credit.

    Twenty Democrats voted against the bill, and three Republican supported it.

    Although the bill passed, a vocal minority of Republicans objected to an earlier vote by House Democrats to prevent GOP members from offering their own bill to make the tax cuts permanent for all Americans, including the highest earners. "

    Did you check the date when that tax cut was extended? You are good at posting links but not so good in checking the facts. It was passed during a lame duck sesson of Congress before the GOP took power in January 2011(2:48 PM, Dec 7, 2010)

    Still waiting for the data supporting your claim that it was trillions in tax cuts?

    Talk to us about the participation rate. My sense is you know that this has been lowered quite a bit by these statistics over the past two years.

    I would advise not holding your breath while waiting. Unless he was to admit the fallacy of the statement.

    Not expecting an answer as that is the normal procedure of far too many here that are confused by facts. Obama didn't need the Republicans to pass elimination of the Bush tax cuts as he had total control of the Congress. What he couldn't do is sell his own party the "benefits" of raising taxes in this economy.
