Real numbers

  • The official unemployment number is 12.3 million.
  • The true number is probably twice that amount.
  • In 2009, 32 million were on food stamps.
  • Today, 48 million are on food stamps.
  • In 2009, 5.5 million were on Social security disability.
  • Today, 11 million are on Social Security Disability.
  • In 2009, there were 139,143,000 jobs in the US.
  • Today, there are 132,705,000 workers a drop of 6.4 million jobs.

For the past few months the feds have been worrying about how to cut 2% from their annual budget, which incidentally, they don't even have a budget. One hasn't been passed for four years.

Does anyone care?
