Notice....a democrat majority congress has
the choice as to which unemployment figures to
use. They disregard the ones whose unemployment
benefits have expired and also the ones that have
stopped looking for a job.

If you took the mafia in it's heyday and compared
it to the politicians in DC, the mafia would look
like a church Sunday School class when compared.

Breaking story! TRUE unemployment rate is 14.7%

This morning it was widely reported that the national "unemployment rate" dropped to 7.8%-,(the
lying, liberal moronic news media), and that most of the drop was "the fact that many people simply stopped looking for a job." That comment is very disrespectful to unemployed people who are working harder than ever to find a job.

The rate that is reported as the unemployment rate by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is table U3. That table only measures the number of people who are Receiving Unemployment Benefits. The true unemployment rate is 14.7% and is reflected on BLS table U6 - and remains unchanged. By the way, Congress dictates which table is used to report unemployment.

Karl and mouse wont post here. They hate the truth.. I know the new number obama bragged about is wrong. College students and women is up to 15 % to 21% across the country. Just who is getting these so called jobs ? Karl ???

Adding more people to obamas "Please re elect me" tour isnt really creating jobs..

It's my understanding that 50% of recent college graduates can't find a job. They aren't counted because they aren't on unemployment.

What a waste of time this administration has been. We needed jobs. We got Obamascare.

Many employers are holding off expanding until Obamascare is either repealed or implemented so they know exactly what it's going to cost them. I know we are.

We also hired someone to replace someone who left and the only reason she left her last job is because they no longer offered Medical insurance due to Obamascare. It's estimated that 30% of companies are considering doing the same thing so if someone finally does find a job their benefits might not be so good.

Dropping health coverage because of Obamacare is nothing but an excuse. Employment based health insurance been in decline for many years alone with middle class pay rates.

The excuse is it will cost more per employee to the employer because of obamascare.It will drive the rates up to cover his new tax regulations on insurance companies forcing people in to obamascare.Its all in his plans to control your life..

Do you know the IRS will be collecting the tax for obamacare ?
Do you know the only people in America that can take your home from you besides your bank/lender is the IRS after obama starts the obamatax ?

Do you know if you miss a payment or decide to not pay for obamacare than the IRS can take your home from you ?

Obama will own your home.

Now why would a president of these free united states want to be able to take your home for not paying for other peoples health care ?

Most companies in the industry I'm in offer group health insurance but don't contribute or contribute very little to the cost. The employee pays for their own insurance through payroll deduction. Obamascare sets up both a mandatory company contribution if you offer medical insurance and a mandatory fine for not offering medical insurance. The fine for not offering insurance is far far less than what the mandatory contribution would be so in order to remain profitable they must drop the insurance.

The mandatory contribution also includes a company contribution for family members so an unfortunate side effect of this will be single people will be cheaper hires than people with families.

There are new companies out there now who will come into your company and help each individual set up their own policy when the decision is made to no longer offer a group plan. I guess Obama did inadvertently create those jobs huh?

Very true. With a true unemployment rate of 14.7% they can't even work at Starbucks with a frivolous degree because all of the people with degrees in engineering and such got those jobs rite?

Now, back on topic.

In order to keep up with population growth and get unemployment below 6% we must add 375,000 jobs each month. The 114,000 we added last month falls well below that goal. Especially considering that many of the jobs added are temporary seasonal jobs that will go away again after Christmas.

Show me the Rabbit statistics then. Are you saying that we don't have an unemployment problem or are you saying that new jobs don't have to keep up with population growth?

This one shows the same number.

You haven't posted any facts. All you've done is call people names in a manner dedicated to inciting people. If you're truly interested in talking politics you have to post your opinions and back them up with sources. Otherwise you aren't going to convince anyone that you're doing anything other than trolling for a fight.

It's so embarrassing that even the liberals have begun to avoid conversing with you. Have you noticed? Educate yourself about the issues and try again hun. You'll get better.

Sorry, I just noticed that the link you wrote this reply to wasn't the link to the Fox report.

Try actually reading it.
Did YOU read it? It verifies that there were only 114,000 new jobs created. They call the people who aren't even looking "discouraged workers" There are over 800,000 of them. That is indeed discouraging. Then there is the paragraph about part time and seasonal workers which coincides with my post stating that these jobs will be gone after Christmas. That's what seasonal means hun. All you did is post a link to statistics that verify what I have stated.

Get better little one™
