Why don't you liberals just step up and pay for the ones that do not have health care and solve the problem?

A sobering U.S. Labor Department jobs report Friday showed the economy lost 524,000 jobs in December and 1.9 million in the year's final four months, after the credit crisis began in September.

Losing more than a half million jobs in each of the last three months, the country is trapped in a vortex of plunging consumer demand, rising joblessness and a deepening crisis in the banking system.

NEW YORK ( CNNMoney.com )-- Employers made their deepest cut in staffing in almost five years in February, the Labor Department reported Friday.
There was a net loss of 63,000 jobs, which is the biggest decline since March 2003 and weaker than the revised 22,000 jobs lost in January. Economists had forecast a gain of 25,000 jobs.
The weak report fueled already mounting recession fears and is likely to keep the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates further when it meets later this month.
"Based on today's Employment Report, if we are not in a recession, it is a darned good imitation of one," said Kevin Giddis, managing director of fixed income at Morgan Keegan. "We are in an unprecedented real estate and credit crisis that is whipping its way through the U.S. economy like a Midwestern tornado."
Job losses were widespread, reaching beyond the battered construction sector, which lost 39,000, and manufacturing, where job losses hit 52,000.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- The jobs outlook brightened in February, as strong business hiring helped trim unemployment to its lowest level in nearly two years.
The unemployment rate fell to 8.9% last month, from 9.0% in January, the best reading since April of 2009. The unemployment rate has now fallen nearly a full percentage point in the last three months, the most rapid improvement in nearly 28 years.

Conservatives live in Bunkers, while dooming and glooming. Maybe this blues song will make you postive about America. I dedicate this song to all doomers and gloomers.

I'm a conservative that lives on a hill, you can see the glass either way, it's OK. I have earned my wealth and therefore I pay for my own insurance. But due to Obama care, my rates have been raised. Why? Blue Cross says to cover their new mandated cost of doing business, I understand. It's just like they explained in their letter to policy holders prior to it's passage, the one the Gov. ordered them not to send out. When you force a business to increase it's expense, they have no choice but to look for more income to maintain their profit margin. If people like me stopped paying for our own insurance, stopped working and paying the taxes, signed up for the free ride, it would all be solved. The programs would end with no one to pay for them or spreed the wealth as Obama would say.

I DO NOT want government in control of Health Care.
Do you like how you feel standing in long lines at the DMV or any office in city hall watching to fiasco called "government" work? Now imagine you need to get medical help (in a hurry) and are in that same line. Need I say more? Government is Not the answer and should not be the first place anyone runs to for answers for anything! How about this for "government", do you file your own tax returns? How fun is that? Do you "get it" now?

Health care is already overpriced. But I see it getting worse now with the new cuts. One reason health care is so hard for many to afford is because Dr. Offices, Clinics and Hospitals over charge so much. When it comes time to bill your provider whether it is a private company or government (Medicaid/Medicare) they bill 2-4 times the price amount than it would cost if you pay in cash.

800,000 jobs lost the month Bush left office, a banking crisis, a mortgage crisis, the market crash and a war of no WMD. The climb from these times of decay is Obama's doing, we are doing so much better, the fact is. Where we were compares to the depression and WWII, with the exception of Bush sent our family to death in Iraq for no reason while exploding the debt. GDP -9% as Bush left office, about +3 n0w or 11% greater and the list goes on. It is bushes fault our family died in Iraq and that Iran no longer has that strong enemy at its border. It is bushes fault we borrowed money for the war. All of the bad above occurred in the Bush Administration. The recovery, the death of Osama, the end of the wars and the bilateral actions to promote our will in the world are all to Obama's credit. Facts and numbers not hot S@@@ or your BS.

First off you have no understanding of the bill. It regulates commerce, the insurance companies etc. Like the FDA regulates, I only stand in long lines at walmart so I don't go there and Walgreens gets me in and out for my pharmacy needs. All commerce is regulated in some way and it does not cause long lines. Government does not control health care in the bill. Read it and educate yourself. theaffordablecareact.gov should get you there. Don't sound stupid by talking about something you don't understand or know about. And listening to Faux news is not helping you learn.
