Despite a trillion dollar stimulus package which didn't stimulate squat, unemployment under the Obama administration has now reached 10.2%...unless you count the people who have given up looking for work, or accepted parttime jobs. Then the figure is 17.5%
To fight this trend, the president has...uh....hang on, I'm sure something will come to us...oh yeah! He's pushed healthcare reform that will raise costs and cause employers to cut jobs! And he raised the minimum wage, causing employers to cut jobs! And he's devaluing the American dollar with soaring deficits, causing employers to cut still more jobs!
In fact, all of the evidence indicates that the president wants high unemployment to force people to accept more government control over their lives. But of course, we shouldn't jump to conclusions...
