You probably don't notice any job growth because the created jobs are going to immigrants.
High-end jobs are going to immigrants that we educate for free.
Give Americans education and, we will fill the jobs.
Why should it not be that immigrants get the jobs? After all you are a immigrant yourself. Born of immigrants and raised by immigrants. Typical from a head that is screwed on backwards. Hmmm. Does incest run in your tribe?

“The time has come to pass on the mantel of leadership” Rick Perry announces he will step down. He will retire to reflect and offer up incantations for Texas.
Asked if he would run in the 2016 primaries, as a candidate, for the run on the White House. Gave no answer other than to excuse himself of the gaffe-plagued campaign that he previously exposed to the world stage, sitting his back pains and lack of sleep. Guess those incantations for support, of his, were dismissed by those higher up.
There will be obstacles that Ricky would have to address.
One minor one would be to revamp his entourages security ideologies. Keeping his campaign from the traditional retail style of politics. Projects an image of paranoia or one is above it all.
Second much greater obstacle is if there will even be a niche in the up coming 2016 politics. Let us set some of the stage, with some of the opponents, that Ricky will be competing with in the republican primaries.
From Florida weighing in on immigration issues, Senator Marc Rubio, from Kentucky weighing in the “Vouchers for Vultures” policies for the health care issues is Senator Rand Paul and how about on more member to round off this Tea Party celebration; A fellow Texan himself, Senator Ted Cruz weighing with his Oily policies and his desires for unrestricted “Arms Race” for the NRA.
Now what does Ricky have to weigh in with? Inequality to the laborers and women folks shackled to his inequality policies. Will he brag about his employment record of 1.6 million new jobs created, under his 16 years in office which comes to 100,000 per year. Even the Tea Party will attack that one. Ricky borrowed money to hire government employees to increase the size of the government and to satisfy debt out of control budget. That number would soon be exposed on the national stage as fraudulent as his spouting off to the rest of his colleagues, not to take any Federal aid, in the afternoon brag.. All the while that very same morning Ricky boy borrows $6 Billion from the Federals.
Yup sure going to be another fine display of republican clowns once again.
Paul Burka a senior executive editor of the Texas Monthly Magazine observed Perry’s speech on July 8th was nothing more than bragging and more bragging with no substance.
Women Folk of Texas will not forget him. Shackling their rights as human beings, to second class citizenship. Seriously doubt that these abused women of Texas will develop a taste for Tea. Chasm widens within the republican party’s.

first off boy....the tin hats are the people like the GOParanoid rants above that believe everything is a conspiracy. I am debunking the tin foil hats so please get your snarky comments accurate.
Secondly, what I post I can back up. If the right would take that same ethic with them when the post their paranoia we wouldn't be having any of these debates.
HA,HA, LOL what have you been drinking? Perhaps someone slipped you some TEA from their POT. Now are you refuting my numbers? Which are not ACTUALLY my numbers. Pedro gets that credit. Here let me refresh those numbers for you once again. Perhaps the purple haze has lifted.

Lets go to the bottom line. Just which of the two party’s is the party to party with? Lets put them to the numbers. Going back 80 years. That will expose as to who is who a little bit more clearly than hyped up foxy journalist could ever do or dysfunctional opinionated commenter’s that infect this thread with their loose thread ideologies.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there is more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Once again another example of an open intelligent leadership scenario of the Obama administration. Addressing the burdensome task of translating Obamacare into the culture of the bureaucrat’s, with their means and ways of administrating. Structuring of an infrastructure, that will suppress advantages and possible corruptions, by the insurance industries.
Obama administration hires a British Firm, that is already servicing our Defense Departments and our Intelligence agencies, Serco will now service the applications of the newly insured. 19 Million is expected in the first year of applications to be serviced.
Serco has been awarded a $1.2 Billion contract, stretched out over 5 years. Mr. Allen Hill states; “ This is a huge undertaking”“ We have some tight deadlines to meet” They will immediately hire on 1,500 employees.
Federal officials were concerned that insurance companies that are already working with the exchange procedures could have an unfair advantage, with their access to non public information. Serco will now oversee who is entitled to insurance health care and who are tax exempt from tax penalties on individuals that went without health care insurance.
Defense contractors facing across the board cuts for their services will find opportunity in the growing health care boon. Obamacare administration will require contractors to run a call center,“Data Service Hub” and Public Relations campaigns.
Presently The Government Accountability Office shows an expenditures of $394 million to various insurance companies. Three fourth of which went to the ten companies. Top three; CGI-Federal, CGI Group {$88mil}, Quality Software Services Inc.{$55mil} and Booz Allen Hamilton {$38mil}

Now I know this will be extremely difficult for you so I’ll give you a few days. Go back and REREAD Truths comment that I was commenting on.

Right Wing cries too fast, too fast, too fast slooooow down..“It Is All About The Economy Stupid”
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.
