Legacy parties wheel bus into position, prepare for permanently higher unemployment rate
Buried in the R/d noise, this message:
Indeed, even adding an average of 95,000 jobs each month, unemployment is likely to remain around 10 percent through this year and not fall below 6 percent until 2015. And while Americans are likely to save more for big-ticket items such as homes or cars, it means a slower recovery for a nation that has lost 8.4 million net jobs since this recession began in December 2007.
Yay! More unterbussen! Oh well. There's always "guard labor"!
Why not just give a paying job to all who want work? It's not like we don't have infrastructure that needs rebuilding.
NOTE I imagine the next step will be to cut Food Stamps.
UPDATE Atrios says "raise the alarm." To whom? The Democrats? They already know.
