    The official U3 unemployment rate was at a 6 year low in January ‘14, but has since risen from 6.6% to 6.7%. Most of the damage done in the last year of the Bush, jr administration has been repaired, at least according to the ’official BLS statistics’.


    Gallup, however, gives a very different view. Only 42.6% of adults are employed full time, with 24.8% unable to find full-time jobs.

    The “official” unemployment numbers are low because the admin has redefined the word to mean temporarly unemployed.

    If you are unemployed for longer than 99 weeks or have ever owned your own business, you are not counted.

    That redefining was done years ago. Shockingly, it did not originate with Obama.

    It might have helped had Congress enacted some of the President’s proposals such as infrastructure construction instead of the Reps killing it. Thus, Stantis’s take on unemployment is a bit unbalanced.

    It is really interesting we spend all of our time investigating Bengaze and the IRS and pummeling Obama care while our roads, bridges, water systems and everything else is falling apart. Roads are filled with potholes after the winter because the roads are falling apart but none of our elected officials seem concerned. I won’t even mention second rate schools, and a very expensive medical care system and a broken mental health system.

    It’s Obama’s fault? How’s about our hot, can’t-wait-to-help, creative Congress backs a jobs bill? A jobs bill that doesn’t include going off on another war.

    Infrastructure, education, healthcare, internet upgrades, there’s a lot that COULD be done if they’d BORROW THE MONEY to do it and rig a PAY BACK SYSTEM into the project. Hello? What do you say, RepubliCons? If I can borrow money to buy a house, or a car — items that will improve my and my neighborhood’s living standard — how come YOU can’t do the same?

    Benghazi, right?

    And, oddly enough, congress doesn’t even need to borrow money, just re-direct a portion of the useless, un-needed and un-wanted military spending.

    Got to get those job providers moving. Oops, they’re all at the bank.

    .
    They did. Remember the $800 billion + stimulus package? Wasn’t it supposed to fund all those “shovel ready jobs”? Instead it was used to prop up local governments and fund failing “green” energy ventures.

    .
    Want to try again?

    When you people talk about Congress inaction.
    Do you really mean lying Harry Reid would get out of the way and let some of the House bills come up for a vote?
    Last year 35 bills sat on his desk. He even said he would not let anything come up for a vote as long as Repubs. run the House.

    It might help if Harry Reid would let some of the over 100 jobs bills passed by Congress onto the floor of the Senate.Reid and Obama can’t do that because some Democrats might vote for them.Leaving Obama little choice but to veto them or sign them.But we can’t have that.It doesn’t further the propaganda that the Republicans are obstructing.Really easy to pull off when all the LWNJ news nerds are in the DNC’s pocket.

    What happened to those “shovel-ready jobs” that Obama-bin-lyin admitted were “not quite so shovel-ready”. And laughed while saying it.

    The roads are the problem of cities & states!!! Only the Interstate highways fall under Federal jurisdiction. That just shows your ignorance. Schools are funded by the cities & states. The Federal government needs to keep their noses out of education. They ruin everything they touch. The mental health system was broken by the government years ago. They closed the mental hospitals & turned the nuts loose on the street. I firmly believe some of them went on to become members of Congress, and one is in the White House.

    We have borrowed ourselves into the poorhouse already! You really want to owe China MORE money? Better learn to speak Chinese, because they will own this country one day soon. When you are ass over appetite in debt, you don’t keep borrowing!
