    Sad thing is, if you count those whose unemployment benefits have run their course, and folks who've been forced to file for SS Disability, or just plain given up - moved back in with their parents for instance, the true rate is probably in the low 20% range.

    I don't care if he says it's .078%. He's still a lieing communist and should not be living in this county, let alone the White House.

    when it goes from 1400 MILLION of our money a YEAR, to

    (what would be the personal budget %, of whatever his salary is,

    at, wait, what does he do, when he isn't president?)...

    When you look inside the numbers, here's what you find. The increase in jobs was due to the counting of part-time jobs, not actual gainful employment (IT guys flipping burgers). Also, they cut the employment force again. Right now, the effective work force is 63.7%, where it was under Carter in the late 70's. The U-6 figure, which is the more accurate indicator, is still at 14.7%.

    This IS NOT a recovery.
