A record high,,,when will we

A record high,,,when will we wake up?? A complete change of faces in congress would be a great beginning. We can not police the world,,give free medical care to anyone entering this country,,or give a free education,, or teach newcomers how to speak english...It is about time we give some attention to the American working guy..the one who is PAYING for all of this.

We need to re-boot the whole

We need to re-boot the whole system and go back to the basics - the constitution. Let capitalism work without government regulations, oversight, bailouts, special deals, lobbyists, etc etc. Get rid of all the "social justice" programs - welfare, medicaid, medicare, housing assistance, etc. It's time we all stood on our own 2 feet and went to work (there would be plenty of jobs because the tax burden would be mostly gone). Abolish the IRS and institute a fair tax that covers defense and infrastructure only. If we don't do something soon, at the Federal level, we are going to continue seeing unemployment figures like these and God-forbid, probably worse.

how that change working now?

how that change working now? do we need to figure out a new way to count stimulus jobs? this administration has been a utter disaster and unfortunately it was by their design..but lets blame Bush, the banks and any other fantasy that comes to Obama mind. 2012 cannot not come soon enough, 2010 will help but without the White House we wont be able to start undoing the damage to our economy and the constitution.
