Isn't it obvious by now that Obama and the Democrats don't care about all this? The more people who are dependent on Government the more likely they are to vote for and support Liberals. This is why Obama has refused to open up offshore and Federal Land for drilling for oil and gas. It has nothing to do with Gullible Warming. IF we put 14 million people back to work and they have to start paying taxes instead of receiving "free stuff" they will stop supporting The Liberal Agenda. Obama can't Fundamentally Transform America if that happens.

Get real. Of course they care. Every head of state, regardless of party or belief, wants to be loved and leave a legacy as such.

One would think that even Liberals would realize that their "hard-earned" EBT dollars don't buy as many Skittles and Slurpees as it used to

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has released the latest unemployment numbers for January. The unemployment rate has jumped back up to 7.9 percent with just 157,000 jobs being added to the economy. The number of unemployed and under-employed persons still sits at an alarming number.

The number of unemployed persons, at 12.3 million, was little changed in January. The
unemployment rate was 7.9 percent and has been at or near that level since September 2012.

In January, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was
about unchanged...
