Is Harry Reid for real!? This has to be the most ignorant/ridiculous thing said from D.C. today!
Republicans are hitting Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) for asserting that it's a "good thing" only 36,000 people lost their jobs in February.
"Today us a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good," Reid said on the Senate floor Friday morning.
Reid's comments were in reference to Friday's jobs report that the unemployment rate held at 9.7 percent in February. The 36,000 total cited by the Majority Leader was 14,000 fewer jobs lost than many analysts had predicted

What an Idioit! I can tell you right now that those 36,000 people don't think it was suck a GOOD thing.... So easy for a guy who make over a 100,00 plus a year to say such things.

It's not very often we agree NP, but this time... We are on the same page!
36,000 people losing their jobs is "only" and a company having 50 jobs available, spread across 50 states, is proof there are "jobs out there but nobody is looking for them". I don't think I like this new math
