WASHINGTON — A measure of U.S. manufacturing fell in May to its lowest level since June 2009 as slumping overseas economies and weak business spending reduced new orders and production.
The Institute for Supply Management said Monday that its index of manufacturing activity fell to 49 last month from 50.7 in April. That's the lowest level in nearly four years and the first time the index has dipped below 50 since November. A reading under 50 indicates contraction.
Monday's report showed that a gauge of new orders fell to 48.8, the lowest in nearly a year. Production dropped to its lowest point since May 2009, and employment dipped.
Manufacturing has struggled this year as weak economies abroad have slowed U.S. exports.
At the same time, consumers are holding back on spending more for factory-made goods, possibly a result of higher Social Security taxes, which have reduced most workers' paychecks this year.

Let me guess, it's the republican Houses' failure?
Recovery from what?

The Bush recession??

Really, another right whiner having a fit because theDemocrats haven't fixed the Republican created economic disaster fast enough.

One out of every 3 manufacturing jobs were lost under the Bush administration.

Wow. Another one whose drawn a conclusion.
People on both sides have been jumping to conclusions rather than waiting for the evidence to be presented.

I can't wait to hear the DNA evidence. I will be interested to hear whether or not any of Martin's DNA was found on Zimmerman's holster. There is so much that hasn't been released or explained due to Florida's public disclosure laws. I know you strongly believe that Zimmerman is guilty of murder. I just don't know but am confident justice will prevail.

MSNBC - Some top political appointees are using secret email accounts that aren't included in the public record, an Associated Press investigation has found.
Most U.S. agencies have failed to turn over lists of political appointees' email addresses which the AP sought under the Freedom of Information Act more than three months ago. The Labor Department initially asked the AP to pay more than $1 million for its email addresses.
This practice is separate from officials who use personal, nongovernment email accounts for work, which generally is discouraged — but often happens anyway — due to laws requiring that most federal records be preserved.
The secret email accounts complicate an agency's legal responsibilities to find and turn over emails in response to congressional or internal investigations, civil lawsuits or public records requests because employees assigned to compile such responses would necessarily need to know about the accounts to search them. Secret accounts also drive perceptions that government officials are trying to hide actions or decisions.

<quoted text>"Predictions of an Obamacare apocalypse seem a little less credible today, thanks to California.
On Thursday, officials in that state offered the first detailed glimpse of what consumers buying health benefits on their own can expect to pay next year. And from the looks of things, these consumers will be getting a pretty good deal." ..."It’s hard to provide a precise figure on premiums in the new exchange, which is officially called Covered California, because so much depends on individual circumstances, plan selection, and region. But you can get a sense of the prices by looking at what a 40-year-old single person would pay, on average, for the second cheapest “silver” plan on the new market. Such a plan, which would cover about 70 percent of a typical person’s medical expenses, would go for about $300 a month or around $3,600 a year. That compares favorably with what insurance costs today. The typical employer plan, for example, presently costs about $5,500 a year. Employer plans are generally more generous than the silver plans would be, so you’d expect them to be more expensive—but not by such a large margin." Check this out: http://www.newrepublic.com/article/113289/oba... #
Can you "guesstimate" how many people will not be able to fill out a 20-page online application for Obamacare? Or just give up?

What happens then?

If people have no money after being fined by the IRS for not having insurance come January 1, what happens then?

How can the federal government which can't even keep up with Veterans' benefits...has no way of monitoring the waste and fraud in welfare...who can't even figure out who knew what in the IRS scandal...enforce Obamacare for millions of Americans?

"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."... Quote: Former Slave Booker T. Washington 1911..
