    The narrative today by Obama and Liberals would be how we've finally "got back to the number of before recession". They might want to tell that to the jobless and those who gave up or forced to retire.

    Meaning, that is how propaganda is defined.

    Note also that the US population has grown by 10 million people since "before the recession" (about 2007).

    Excellent point. In essence, in the last 2,312 days, we’ve added combined populations of Massachusetts and Virginia without adding jobs.

    The only meaningful statistic about employment and unemployment is the percentage of people of working age who have jobs.

    Keep in mind that the liberals are paying so many people so much money to stay at home that they'd be fools to want to enter the workforce. They might make more money staying at home and watching TV and tweeting and Facebooking. Would you take a pay cut to switch out from a zero hours work week to the joy of being gainfully employed 40 hours a week at a 25% cut in your income?

    We are actually paying people to not want to enter the workforce. How wrong is that?

    The "recovery" should be over. Obamacare has completely killed any chance of recovery, and they're really trying to make this recession the new normal.

    Obamacare may be the biggest rock in the wheelbarrow, but the new coal fired power generation laws and the obstruction of the Keystone pipeline are other large rocks too. When you load up a wheelbarrow with heavy rocks, which one was the one that broke the axle?

    If there is a better way to fuck up the economy I'm sure the liberals will trot it out and get it in place before the election. They don't seem to understand that the economy (including the disastrous effects of Obamacare) will be the main battleground.
