  • Great combination there isn't it. Prisoners who wont be able to find work and lower the capacity strength to catch them when the become a part of the recidivism rate.

    And Obama goes to Elkhart near where I grew up to tell them how great the stimulus worked when they have 20% unemployment. BRILLIANT!

  • We are sinking further in this economy, as many others are, and we're not unemployed. Do you realize that the cut in Payroll taxes that was passed, giving you more in your paycheck, actually increases you take home pay? And, if your take home pay is increased, you will have a change in your tax liability when you do your 2009 taxes. This will cause many to owe a big bill who did not prepare for that, and potentially cause more problems. And, are you aware that if you do your taxes, and are expected to get money back, that Obama is pushing an automatic audit unless you opt to pay them money? Either way, you are out.

  • Boehner mocks Rahm's 'rescued the economy' claim House Minority Leader John Boehner is having fun with Rahm Emanuel's comment that Democrats have "rescued the economy." “Now, I’m sure that the 9.5 percent unemployment rate that we have in our country today and from most economic experts on its way up don’t believe that we’ve rescued the economy," Boehner said in a House floor speech this morning. "The 11.1 percent unemployment rate that we have in Ohio, I’m sure those people are looking up today wondering, wait a minute, the President is going to say we rescued the economy? I don’t think so
