This is why Clinton reduced the debt. In a global economy with cheap labor you can't have this massive debt because the middle and lower class will be cut off from the global economy
The Congress controlls the purse strings. The Republican lead Congress of 94'lowered spending, Clinton signed it.

I still don't get the point of trying to "prove" that unemployement is x% higher than people think.

Americans, we will keep heading down this road where they play party politics to fool everyone 4 to 8 years at a time!
They just shift blame on to each other to confuse and then do the same exact things. They pretend that each side has some huge difference in agendas and goals, but the goal is the same Globalism and control.
This is a joke - a sick joke!

here's the scary part.
sure, the stock market has been doing rather well. companies are reporting good to great earnings. things must be better, right?
sure, unless you consider the decrease in expenses these companies have thanks to all those laid off workers. smaller salaries, smaller benefits, profits rise.

WOW! Thank God the Democrats rammed through that $787 Billion dollar stimulus package early last year. Can you imagine where we would be if we had allowed all of those "Too big to fail" companies fall down? I'll tell you where's we be... in RECOVERY!!! This country is bleeding red ink all over the place because we are propping up companies that have no business being in business. When a "Leader" in an industry fails, a new company emerges and takes its place. Why? Because the new company has a better business plan, better business practices and probably better products and services. This is what happens in a HEALTHY economy!
Instead, we limp along doing all of the same things we've been doing that got us into this mess in the first place - you know, the whole deifinition of insanity. It was apparent to me over a year ago that Obama was NOT the man for the job. Too bad this country is filled will millions of mouth-breathing dolts who believe anything they hear. I certainly hope they're prepared to watch this situation - the one THEY created by electing this clown - get much worse.
