In other words, 5.5% of 200M and 5.5% of 300M population are not similar numbers of people out of work. And the numbers don't count those who are NOT ACTIVELY RECEIVING BENEFITS.
Well, you understand the idea of proportionality -- a percent is just that. If the proportion is low, that's a good thing. Would you not agree with me that lower is better?
I doubt you could find a more squishy argument about employment. How many people are they? What are they doing? Is it by choice or not? How do you know?
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
