Um, unemployment actually went DOWN.

At one point, unemployment went to 10%.

Today, it is 7.6%.

When Obama took office, it was 7.8%.

When Clinton left office, unemployment was 4%.

What happened in between?

People voted Republican.

Actually Hope promised to fix unemployment in the first half of his first term. When you adjust the 7.6 for all of the people that have given up hope it is worse than 8%. If you round what do you get, 8%. The point is that unemployment is not improving. How long will you continue to blame those that have not been in control?

"Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., told The New York Times. "Republicans now have lost twice out on fiscal issues in the last month: first the fiscal cliff and now this."

Pagan- Exactly! Since when did just passing legislation become the measure of good politics? Maybe it's because it's bad legislation. More laws and rules don't a good country make! Ya, I know, you're the "more government" type. Well, I'm not, so I would rather not have frivolous bills passed just for the sake of doing so. So what if it's 3%? Maybe that's too high!
