How To Destroy An Entire Country

By Alan Grayson From a recent 188-page report by the World Health Organization come these ghastly and appalling factoids: Suicide rates rose 40% in the first six months of 2011 alone. Murder has doubled. 9,100 doctors in Greece, roughly one out of every seven, have been laid off. Joining those doctors in joblessness are 27.6% of the entire Greek labor force. By comparison, in the depths of the Great Depression, unemployment in the United States peaked at a lower percentage ... Full Story

Republicans are the Big Government Party

    Unemployment Rate Would be 7.1 Percent Without Government Cuts March 11th, 2013 By Jason Sattler One of the biggest Republican myths of the last four years is that the government has been exploding in size. The truth is that federal, state and local governments have cut more than 750,000 jobs since June of 2009. If those jobs hadn’t been lost, the unemployment rate would now be 7.1 percent, according to the Labor Department. The total number of people ... Full Story

Mendacious Mitt

    Why Does Mitt Romney Like Firing People? Because He Made $20,000 On Every Laid-Off Worker  By Axel Tonconogy Mitt Romney would prefer for you to recall just one number regarding his record at Bain Capital. That would be 100,000 — the number of jobs that the Republican candidate  claims he created during 15 years at the private equity firm.

Gardner statement on Nov. jobs report

  Press Release WASHINGTON D.C. – Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement on the national unemployment numbers for the month of November: "It was encouraging to see a dent made in our nation’s unemployment last month, but the jobless rate remains unacceptably high. Too many people are still out of work, and businesses still worry about economic uncertainty. While the number moved lower, it masks the 300,000 who simply quit looking for employment. We have a ...

Meltdown: Episode 2

Meltdown: Episode 2

Finally, it asks how the world can prepare for the next crisis even as it ... Full Story

Our Economy

Our Economy

To the Editor, This is a fine mess we’ve gotten ourselves into. Both our unemployment rate and our national debt are ‘way too high, and improving either one will make the other worse. Spending money to increase jobs will increase our debt. Laying off government workers to lower spending will increase unemployment. More unemployment = less consumer spending = fewer new jobs. If we do nothing, we stagnate. The Obama Administration is struggling mightily with this inherited ... Full Story
