Its like everything else the Obama regime comes out with...smoke and mirrors, and of course, bald faced lies.

Liberals dont mind. They cannot tell the difference between truth and fairy tales anyway.

The truth is that millions upon millions of unemployed arent counted by the government anymore, because the Obama regime just redid the calculus as to how to calculate the unemployment rate.

These tens of millions of unemployed are still unemployed, to besure.

They just arent counted any more.

A truer count of the unemployed would be the job participation numbers, which is the lowest it has been since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

But the mainstream liberal news media will not tell you the truth about that. And the do-nothing Republicans in Washington wont do anything in Washington except work to pass tax breaks for the rich.

Both parties want more job export programs, such as NAFTA, where we the taxpayers actually pay American firms to take our jobs away and send them overseas.

(Which, of course, puts more Americans out of work)

And both parties want more amnesty-like programs, where undocumented workers from central America will come up here and work for the rich, at below federal wage laws.

Democrats and Republicans in Washington both want that, as it helps the rich by giving them more helpless people to exploit for cheap labor..

(Never mind that it puts more Americans out of work)

But its OK, because the Obama regime has new accounting standards that just dont count the true number of unemployed.

And that is Obamas version of "Change we can believe it".

(Even though nobody but a few foaming-at-the-mouth, radical atheist extremist liberals actually believe it)

And there you go. The unemployment situation as it really is.

The rich used to getting richer must be made to pay more for hard work and take less for themselves . Many ways we could do this this way is best but if it fails we have to tax it away and redistribute in ways that help rebuild our economy . Or revolution will happen sooner or later the majority comes first or they take things into their own hands .

When Obama and the democrats talk about making the rich pay thier fair share, its is a redirection of attention away from the real problem.

The real problem, is that we keep sending American jobs overseas.

Every year, we loose millions of full time (40 hour per week) jobs with good pay, and replace them with an equal or less number of part time jobs at the lowest legal pay scale.

The tidal wave of illegal aliens coming in while Obama refuses to enforce the border and immigration laws ensures that there will be many more millions that the rich can exploit to work for far less than the legal wage.

We will never rebuildthe economy until we end the job exportation programs, like NAFTA.

Of course, with Obamacare now on the books, it pretty much too far gone into leftist stupidity tofix the national economy.

Which is probably what the radical left wants anyway. Look at all the leftist takeover crap that FDR got away with because of the Depression. He never could have done it without it.

Really? What about the poor, they don't work at all and are given more and more all the time. Why should they work?? They don't have to pay for anything important. Their food, housing, medical is all taken care of. Now they have free cell phones (which in my opinion is more of a want than a need) they have free lunches for their kids all year round plus WIC I could go on and on. Poor do better than the middle working class that is carrying everyone.

Your socialist idea works until you runout of OTHER people's money.
It still amazes me of the stupidity of people like you but you were trained and brainwashed by the liberal progressive socialist communist to think as you people do.

Cheap labor from other countries like China has destroyed the American workers wage.
Start a revolution and see where big brother puts you.

I feel so sorry for your kind.

Yup, the ultra rich crammed a series of job export programs down our throats (like NAFTA). It collapsed the Mexican economy, as well as the US economy.

But it made the ultra rich producers and retailers,( Lets say, like" Big-Mart", or "Recall Motors") able to buy cheaply made goods in some forced labor camp or sweat shop, and then sell them to the growing poor class in America.

So, the rich did irreperable damage to America, just for a short term pop of cash.

Cant blame the poor for sticking out thier hand and takng the offered slice of the pie.

Dont matter anyway. Things are on the downhill slide.

With the rich in an out of control frenzy of lobbyist corruption and influence peddling going on in Washington (like Obamacare, written by and for the huge profitts of insurance companies, to the oil wars, and about everything else), to Obama refusing to obey the immigration laws, there never has been a time in our history of so much government corruption.

The gulf between rich and poor has never been so wide.

The only reason there are so many entitlement programs is because corrupt officials are using the ole Roman tactic of placating the "mob" ,while they rob and corrupt the government treasury, pass countless corrupt laws to benifit thier rich benefactos, and and line thier own pockets.

The whole thing is unsustainable, of course. A collapse is inevitable sooner or later. Every nation that has suffered this sort of government corruption has endured a severe collapse of currency and economic collapse sooner or later.

Same old historical pattern. Wash, rinse, repeat.

So, the poor might as well enjoy the entitlements while they last. It will be bad enough for everyone once the collapse comes in full.
