And what's the number of 99ers who are no longer on unemployment, paid into unemployment all their lives, still can't find work and are on the verge of losing everything?? Funny that THOSE statistics aren't shown!!

What a total and complete joke. Sadly there are some who look at these numbers and actually think they have meaning to our economy. When the numbers are going south we hear it's only one figure you must take them all into consideration. When we have one week below the magic 400,000 number why the experts are ready, almost ready, right there ready to say all is well. The reality is there are far more people unemployeed then what are being counted and thanks to a president who is totally clueless it isn't getting better, and most of those unemployeed were and are on his watch; caused by his dismal policies.
