Well of course the recession has ended.
That's because we're in a depression.

I'm calling BS on the recession being over in 2009 - or even now ...
Worse, I think this is nothing more than a pitiful attempt to gain votes for the dems in the November elections.

here is a group that hasn't made it into the statistics as of yet. The small business owner who hasn't closed up shop just yet. I know of these elusive beasts as I happen to be one. My income is less than half of what is was when things were decent. My bills didn't change just because my income went down. I wonder how many more are like me and haven't even been considered into the unemployment figures. The recession is over when small businesses start to build new locations. Until then, it's all just smoke and mirrors. Oh, and a lot of Bullshot.
Based on the 2010 U.S. budget, total national debt will grow to nearly 100% of GDP, versus a level of approximately 80% in early 2009.The White House estimates that the government’s tab for servicing the debt will exceed $700 billion a year in 2019, up from $202 billion in 2009.
