How quick you're always looking to re-write history. Which president announced in September of 2008 that our financial system was near collapse? Did that happen on Obama's watch? The subsequent near-depression was a result of Bush's horrible stewardship of our economy, and thank goodness for our recovery, slow as it is.

What has the Republican controlled House of Representatives done to improve our economy? The 112th Congress has been one of the worst, if not the worst in our history!!

Here's the strateejury: Just keep blaming the black guy in the White House for everything!!! Rolling Eyes

There you go again, blaming Bush! Can't you get over that? By the time O is out of office will it still be Bush's fault? Never mind, you don't need to answer. The House can't do it alone. They need either the president or the senate. Everything the House passed to try to improve the economy, the Senate blocked.

Unemployment falls for the wrong reason as many Americans give up on weak job market

Post  fshnski on Fri Sep 06, 2013 6:33 pm

The drop in the unemployment rate in August to a 4½-year low was hardly cause for celebration. The rate fell because more people stopped looking for work.
More than 300,000 people stopped working or looking for a job. Their exodus shrank the so-called labor force participation rate — the percentage of adult Americans with a job or seeking one — to 63.2 percent. It's the lowest participation rate since August 1978.
Once people without a job stop looking for one, the government no longer counts them as unemployed. That's why the unemployment rate dropped to 7.3 percent in August from 7.4 percent in July even though 115,000 fewer people said they had jobs.
If those who left the labor force last month had still been looking for work, the unemployment rate would have risen to 7.5 percent in August.

(CNSNews.com) - The number of Americans who are 16 years or older and who have decided not to participate in the nation's labor force has pushed past 90,000,000 for the first time, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The BLS counts a person as participating in the labor force if they are 16 years or older and either have a job or have actively sought a job in the last four weeks. A person is not participating in the labor force if they are 16 or older and have not sought a job in the last four weeks.

In July, according to BLS, 89,957,000 Americans did not participate in the labor force. In August, that climbed to 90,473,000--a one month increase of 516,000.

In January 2009, when President Barack Obama took office, there were 80,507,000 Americans not in the labor force. Thus, the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 9,966,000 during Obama's presidency.

Energy Department loses $42M on clean-energy loan to Mich. van company

Post  fshnski on Sat Sep 07, 2013 2:13 pm

The Energy Department conceded Friday that the federal government will lose $42 million on a loan to a shuttered Michigan van manufacturer — part of the same program that provided a $529 million loan to an electric car maker that also has gone under.

Vehicle Production Group (VPG), which made vans for the disabled, ceased operations in February and laid off 100 workers, two years after receiving a $50 million federal loan under the same clean-energy program that provided a $529 million loan to electric car maker Fisker Automotive Inc., according to the Associated Press.

VPG had paid back $5 million of the $50 million federal loan this spring, and the remainder of its debt was sold at auction this week to Humvee manufacturer AM General, which paid $3 million to buy the loan.

In an email to AP, an Energy Department spokesman said sale of the VPG loan was the “best possible recovery for the taxpayer.”

Fisker had received $192 million before federal officials froze the loan in 2011. The company has since laid off 75 percent of its workers, though the government has recovered only about $28 million of the money.

The losses come after federal government’s failed risked on solar panel maker Solyndra, which went under in 2011 despite receiving more than $500 million from the Energy Department.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, chairman of a House Oversight subcommittee on economic growth and regulation, called the loan program “one of the most disastrously mismanaged and corrupt programs in U.S. history,” AP reported.

Should we kill for oil or drill for oil?
