This is a huge thread and really informative. I hope everyone gets to see this stuff. Near 88 million not working—just crazy.
Too much for now...later is better.
How many of these jobs are part-time, low paying? When 20 million new jobs were created during the Reagan adminstration the media loved to paint them as mostly “burger flipping jobs”, which was a lie. Of course they never talk about what kind of jobs are being created under the Obama regime.
The truth is that our economy hasnt created any new jobs since Obamas policies took effect. The total number of jobs peaked at an all time high of 146,595,000 in November of 2007, and through March of 2012 the number stands at 142,034,000, more than 4.5 million off the mark.
To make the claim of having created more jobs than Mr. Bush, which we all know was Mr. Obamas insinuation; he must first match Mr. Bushs all-time-high of 146,595,000. If the number of persons who involuntarily dropped out of the labor force (7.3 million), since Mr. Obamas policies took effect, had instead been jobs created, Mr. Obama might go down in history as the all-time greatest. However, since we presently have 4.5 million fewer jobs than existed at Mr. Bushs peak, and since, under the direction of Mr. Obama, 7.3 million new working age persons have been pushed straight into joblessness and generational dependency, Mr. Obamas policies should perhaps be branded as the most ineffective in U.S. history.
