It is true that there a growing underground economy were the cronic unemployeed go to.
However it is also true by any ones theory that as the above ground economy begins to expand that action should in time address this problem.

Last month, however, the situation began to look a bit brighter. The Labor Department announced that the economy added 157,000 jobs in January, but revised its previous estimates to show that job growth in the later half of 2012 was much better than expected. And this morning’s report — which shows that the economy added 236,000 jobs in February, and that the unemployment rate fell to 7.7%— is more evidence that the thawing of the labor market has picked up speed of late.

AP)— A jump in the stock market and rising home prices are bringing Americans closer to regaining the wealth they lost in the recession.
U.S. household net worth dipped in the April-June quarter, according to a Federal Reserve report released Thursday. But gains in stock and home equity since the last quarter ended have likely raised total household wealth to within 5 percent of its peak before the Great Recession.
Well gosh, if they hadn't printed the adusted rate of growth of the economy at .1 and not the 1.5 they had previously posted I might take up your banner.

Clinton was the by far the best President we have had in a century when it came to handling the budget.

W. was quite possibly the worst.

I t has taken 5 years, far too long, to get the economy back on it's feet after the abuse it had taken.
If the congressional GOP will stop insisting on balancing the budget too quickly and in an unbalanced manner I will be getting back to you in a couple years.
Just in time for the next Republican to crash it again, using theory where realistic accounting belongs.

Boner's bill, pookie, no matter if he "signes" it or not.

PS: 18 months for Boner to replace it with a budget.

Do I have to remind you how a bill is passed again DUMBO?

It’s a brilliant political strategy… the right has been boxed into another corner on another issue. President Obama has perfectly laid the ground work for every step that is being made right now. Are you right-wing idiots really that foolish to not see what is coming; were you not paying attention in the past?
How do you think this Black man made history by becoming the first African American President?
How do you think this brilliant President got Health Care Reform?
How do you think this President got the Supreme Court to deem OBAMACARE constitutional?
How is it that he knew more about the Constitution than they did?
How do you think this brilliant President has been able to keep this nation protected from terrorist attack while hunting down and killing (single-handedly) Osama bin Laden?
We’ve seen this story before, and we know the ending… Obama wins; Obama always wins, LOL!
You're already been "outed" as a loon who advocates murder. Get lost. Your Topix days are over.
