    Every passing day proves one thing, we're pulling out of the worst economic downturn since the depression of the thirties. The republicans can't stand this fact, and do all they can to discount any progress made. They do this because they know deep down that they, and they alone are responsible for the economic downturn to begin with. It's enlightening, and funny to watch the republican spin machine at work. Those that buy into the hatred, will some day wake up. I hope it's soon.

    The members of the House ran on jobs jobs jobs in 2010 - we kicked some out in 2012. Let's get rid of all the obstructionists in 2014, expecially of vino-drinking Boner.

    yeah right Mallory – sounds like you're full of it – so what are we "employers" supposed to do ?? Huh ? Lets go with what you repubs want, for instance. So you take away health care for everybody in this country, other than people who make at least 100K – ( remember, THEY are the Only ones who Can afford it) Then the ones who make Less than 100K or Less than 75K – what do they do ? They just figure : ""well since I can't afford health insurance"" I will just go to the E.R. – Hello ?? SO what or shall I say Where Do You Think the Money is going to Come From, Mallory ?? (answer: I have to PAY the "extra" that comes out of my Bottom Line) But it doesn't sound like you are smart enough to figure that out) unfortunately.

    OK – This is from an "Employer" like myself – - I would be glad to eliminate or do away with the affordable health care plan – IF PEOPLE OR EMPLOYEES CAN AFFORD IT – Why don't we Just make the minimum wage 22 bucks an hour ?? THEN we can do away with the affordable health care plan !!

    Otherwise – as an "employer" I say : Like Dubya used to say : "stay the course"

    why do people keep saying that people have left the work force and this is not a true representation? That argument is getting old

    Being an old "argument," does not change the truth of it.

    Being an old lie does not change it, either. It would seem that you cannot comment and offer a solution, but that's an old delta-minus way of deflecting attention away from your inability to explain yourself.
