To all the very serious, grown-up people in Washington, D.C., IT'S NOT WORKING, neither are 9.8% of the American population that are actually looking for jobs. In other words VSGUP, there are a lot of people who are discouraged, underemployed, or desparately catotonic. With the previous in mind, the real unemployment rate is more like 17.1%, & that was in September of 2010. It's worse now & even without stats the 9.8% "official" number is probably short by half. But the real rich need their tax breaks.
