Poof a whole bunch of Americans have suddenly disappeared under the terrorist arm of Barack Hussein O'bama. The U3 rate is the percentage of the "participating labor force" that is unemployed. That is all well and good, except that the Obama labor department has decided that it will simply manipulate the definition of "labor force" to suit its own needs. And what the O'bama administration has done is simply shrink the definition of the "labor force" by pretending that hundreds of thousands of non-working adults are no longer in existence for all intents and purposes. Look out you could be next. According to O'bama it is easy to get rid of Americans like yourself. POOF!@#*& O'bama says you are a unit, no longer needed.:)

"GOP faces its own divisions on budget issues
Susan Davis, USA TODAY 3:35 p.m. EDT August 1, 2013
John Boehner

WASHINGTON — Republicans in Congress stumbled this week over their party's internal divisions on fiscal issues, leaving the party struggling for direction as it prepares for a bruising fall battle with Democrats over the federal budget.

Wednesday, GOP leaders abandoned a transportation spending bill that adhered to the budget drafted by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. It would have continued this year's governmentwide spending cuts known as the "sequester." The Ryan budget had been approved by the House in March with all but 10 House Republican votes, but Wednesday, GOP leaders were not able to muster enough votes to pass the transportation bill, the first non-defense spending bill that would have implemented the Ryan spending levels. Some Republicans joined Democrats in opposition to the bill because it did not provide enough money for government programs they consider crucial.

House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., issued a blistering critique of his colleagues after the bill was pulled. "With this action, the House has declined to proceed on the implementation of the very budget it adopted just three months ago. Thus, I believe that the House has made its choice: sequestration – and its unrealistic and ill-conceived discretionary cuts – must be brought to an end," Rogers said.

But Thursday, Senate Republicans blocked a second, more generous, version of the same bill because it would have spent more money than allowed under the sequester. They blocked the bill despite the advocacy of Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who helped write the bill and asked her GOP colleagues to support it.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., both face divisions among the GOP rank-and-file on the best path forward in negotiations with Democrats on how to prevent a government shutdown when the funding runs out Sept. 30...."

I see you didn't answer any of the questions.
Not one republican voted for the Affordable Healthcare Act which is going to be anything but affordable - especially for the younger healthier generation who will bear the brunt of the costs.
Not one democrat in the Senate voted to make significant cuts in the budget to do away with abuse, fraud, waste and duplication in the federal government despite numerous bills passed by the House.
Do you really still believe that any republican really cares about any younger person's higher private debt after they voted to keep interest rates on student college loans high ,blocked every jobs bill (including one for returning war veterans--republicans also don't care how many U S war veterans owe too much private debt, lose their homes, can't find jobs , or go back to school because it is too expensive --keeping younger people who go to school,and fight our wars for us , desperate and in debt helps republican corporate masters force our young people to settle, out of fear , for lower paying , part-tine jobs rather than pursuit of careers.

Yeah made a good point last night. He said if Romney/Ryan got in, we'd have less than what we have now.

And I agreed. Less scandals. Less money taken out of our checks. Less confusion and costs implementing Obamacare. Less fear and uncertainty about future health care. Less concern about government becoming Big Brother. Less poverty. Less unemployment. Less power grabbing.

Hard to believe I agreed with Yeah.

Abolishing Medicare and Social Security is not a reform plan. Paul Ryan, in his more candid ,private moments off-the-record, have made it clear that he wants to completely wipe out FDR and the Kennedy/Johnson years of liberal, progressive reform.

There's a division among Republicans right now on how best to get rid of Obamacare. Some want to simply defund it cold turkey which would make Obama and the democrats very happy. They could blame republicans for shutting down the government when they are the ones who started the confusion in the first place by passing a massive piece of legislation that will affect us all as well as future generations profoundly without the majority of the people or one Republican on board.

The shutdown, however, would not defund anything but Obamacare.

Other Republicans want to outsmart the fox and let the worst happen so that, by November 2014, everyone will be feeling the pain and confusion and the Democrats will defeat themselves.

Decisions...decisions...either /or would be better than doing nothing.

The dilemma for Republicans is if they do nothing to try and defund it now and Americans start feeling the pain and confusion next year - which they most definitely will - there's a concern Republicans could be blamed for not defunding it now.

There's also the certainty they will be blamed by all Democrats loudly and persistently that they are responsible for shutting down the government for trying to prevent certain pain and confusion on the part of all Americans next year.

Again...decisions...decisions. ..how best to slay the monster and make the Democrats out to be the masters of that monster.

Just so people like you also won't have to feel the pain and confusion unleashed by the masters of that monster.
