    A sign of things to come as a result of the failures of the Dims.
    O and his cronies celebrated the “Good News!” that unemployment dropped to 7.4% (blacks 12.6%) this month. Nevermind that number dropped because millions of Americans have just quit looking for work since O took office.
    The workforce participation number for working adults is now the lowest since the Great Depression. Only 63% of working age people now hold a job!
    Also of the 192k jobs created last month(well under what’s needed to account for new workers), ONLY 90k were full-time positions and more than half were low-paying retail and restaurant jobs.
    The Left Angeles Times reported today that a 36% of “young adults” (age18-31) still live with their parents, an all-time high!
    How’s all that Hopey Changey stuff working for ya?

    “The Obama health care tax has initiated the 29.5 hr. work week.”

    THAT has been around for AGES. Just because service companies offer benefits packages for full time employees doesn’t mean they allow their employees enough hours to qualify for it. I have personally seen that in action nearly 15 years ago.

    I was put on a 30 hour week just to keep me qualified.
    This was before Obamacare and the insurance company dropped me anyway since I contracted cancer.
    40 years of payments meant nothing to them.
    Yes indeed, I am a firm supporter of Obamacare, I do wish it had come through a couple years earlier, it would have added quite a few years to my life.
    I would have wasted them, but it would have been more fun than than I am having now.

    Right. Keep blocking everything that helps the bottom line at any other company at any other job and see what happens. No Republican congressman could hold a job in any private business with their “destroy the company at all costs” attitude. When was the last GOP jobs bill? Of course, there hasn’t been one.

    Total baloney. The stimulus ended the recession — look at any jobs chart, and you can spot the moment that stimulus spending started by the surge in jobs. It has ended, and to no one’s surprise, jobs have leveled off.

    “uhh – state senator, not going to DC.
    You must live up to your ‘handle’ if you think every single person in a political party thinks 100% the same.
    Let’s try to not be mean / hating & simplistic. Have you read anything about the man – or is this just an auto-reflex liberal knee jerk reaction?”
    It’s just an auto-reflex knee jerk reaction.
    I do know that he campaigned on producing jobs and I also know that he didn’t get nominated, let alone elected, without the approval of the party. And Republican efforts to produce jobs have resulted in 40 repeals of Obamacare.
    I also know that every state where Republicans have take power, they have legislated voter suppression and made abortion illegal as much as they can.
    While I agree that not every party member thinks alike, Republicans are very effective at enforcing their ‘principles’ and they operate in lockstep. Any Republican who deviates from the orthodoxy gets primaried like Lugar in Indiana and the senator from Utah.
    Knee jerk reaction, admitted. Then again, what differences should we expect from Vidak?

    “The Obama health care tax has initiated the 29.5 hr. work week.”

    What planet have you been living on over the last few decades? That’s all the jobs there have been for the last twenty years.

    No one has been creating any jobs. The jobs are all being created overseas, so we can pump up the economies of our rivals.

    That makes perfect sense to someone, but I can’t figure out who.

    Morgenthau believed in balanced budgets, stable currency, reduction of the national debt, and the need for more private investment. The Wagner Act regarding labor unions met Morgenthau’s requirement because it strengthened the party’s political base and involved no new spending. Morgenthau accepted Roosevelt’s double budget as legitimate — that is, a balanced regular budget, and an “emergency” budget for agencies, like the Works Progress Administration (WPA), Public Works Administration (PWA) and Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), that would be temporary until full recovery was at hand. He fought against the veterans’ bonus until Congress finally overrode Roosevelt’s veto and gave out $2.2 billion in 1936. In the 1937 “Depression within the Depression”, Morgenthau was unable to persuade Roosevelt to desist from continued deficit spending. Roosevelt continued to push for more spending, and Morgenthau promoted a balanced budget. In 1937, however, Morgenthau successfully convinced Roosevelt to finally focus on balancing the budget through major spending cuts and tax increases; Keynesian economists have argued that this new attempt by Roosevelt to balance the budget created the Recession of 1937.9 On November 10, 1937, Morgenthau gave a speech to the Academy of Political Science at New York’s Hotel Astor, in which he noted that the Depression had required deficit spending, but that the government needed to cut spending to revive the economy. In his speech, he said:10

    “We want to see private business expand. … We believe that one of the most important ways of achieving these ends at this time is to continue progress toward a balance of the federal budget.”

    His biggest success was the new Social Security program; he reversed the proposals to fund it from general revenue and insisted it be funded by new taxes on employees. Morgenthau insisted on excluding farm workers and domestic servants from Social Security because workers outside industry would not be paying their way.11 He questioned the value of the deficit spending that had not reduced unemployment and only added debt:6

    “We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong … somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. … I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. … And an enormous debt to boot.”12

    To reduce the deficit he argued for increased taxes, particularly on the wealthy.

    “We have never begun to tax the people in this country the way they should be….. I don’t pay what I should. People in my class don’t. People who have it should pay.”12
