"opportunists" like Romney the corporate raider who chops up companies & kills them for profit? or like WI's Walker, who seized the moment with his Trojan Horse campaign against collective bargaining & is now laying off workers? the difference between those conniving bastards & people like Buffet & Gates is genuine honesty & compassion for fellow Americans.

YES, the hypocritical Democrats in the Senate and the Whitehouse will vote them down. SO WHAT. Republicans control the house, they were elected to do a job, they should be doing it no matter how in vain it may be.

It's 2011. As long as they did their part, the liberal media and democrats would not be able to get away with this crap. The American people would know the Pubs tried and were thwarted by the Senate and by Obama.

Instead they're wasting our time and money.

As far as I'm concerned, the verdict is in. John Boehner is NOT the man to lead our party, and IS IN FACT the same guy who was at the helm during the 2000s and went right along with Bush's country club, big government "republicanism"

I agree....smaller government, minimal entitlements, etc...

I want to see them defund The Department of Energy and the Department of Education. Both are massive failures.

End all Corporate welfare. End the Farm subsidies and end Ethanol subsidies.

And kill Welfare. The biggest blight on America since Slavery.

Yet GE laid of 21,000 and hired people overseas. And let's not forget Hillary's "amazing" investments and Rangles ROI or That Teddy increased his own personal wealth 10 fold in the last 10 years of his life. We will never know how much he made for his other family members.

biggrin 8.8%

The unemployment rate fell to a two-year low of 8.8 percent in March, capping the strongest two months of hiring since before the recession began.

The economy added 216,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department said Friday. Factories, retailers, the education and health care sectors and professional and financial services all expanded payrolls. Those job gains offset layoffs by local governments.

Another month of brisk hiring provided the latest sign that the economy is strengthening nearly two years after the recession ended.
Private employers, the backbone of the economy, drove the gains. They added more than 200,000 jobs for a second straight month. It was the first time that's happened since 2006 -- more than a year before the recession started.

The unemployment rate dipped from 8.9 percent in February. The rate has fallen a full percentage point over the past four months. That's the sharpest drop since 1983.

"The U.S. labor market is finally making some serious progress," said Sal Guatieri, economist at BMO Capital Markets Economics.
Economists predict employers will add jobs at roughly the same pace for the rest of this year. That would generate about 2.5 million new positions. Still, that would make up for only a small portion of the 7.5 million jobs wiped out during the recession.

Of course, the 8.8% number doesn't tell the real or whole story, does it?

unemployment will continue to fall as congress finally stops extending unemployment benefits.

oh, and btw, the majority of the "jobs" created are minimum wage, part time, no benefit fast food jobs.

good job dims, replace 60,000 manufacturing jobs with 80k part time minimum wage jobs and claim a great victory, lol



lower unemployment does NOT equal more people paying taxes
