Unemployment Horror Show 


The employment situation in the United States is much worse than even the dismal numbers from
last week’s jobless report would indicate. The nation is facing a full-blown employment crisis and
policy makers are not responding with anything like the sense of urgency that is needed....

Charles McMillion, an expert on employment, says “Over the past three months, 1,155,000
unemployed people dropped out of the active labor force and were not counted as unemployed..
We’ve got more and more people in our working-age population and fewer and fewer jobs to go around.
Mr. McMillion tells us that there are now 3.4 million fewer private-sector jobs in the U.S. than there
were a decade ago. In the last 10 years, we’ve seen the worst job creation record since 1928 to 1938.
We’re not heading toward the danger zone. We’re there. The U.S. will not remain a stable society if
this great employment crisis is not addressed head-on - and soon. You cannot allow joblessness on
this scale to fester. It’s wrong, and the blowback will be as destructive and intolerable as it is inevitable.

If we were to lose, say 60 House seats and a dozen senate seats, would that wake Obama up?   
What is he waiting for?   Permission from McConnell and Boehner?

I know - hire Bill Clinton as "Jobs Czar."

Or would he cast too long a shadow?
