Boy have you drunk the MSM koolaid! First, WHAT AUSTERITY? Second, WHAT RECOVERY? Third, the demoncraps have been in control of the economy for most of the last twenty years. How is the destruction of our economy the fault of Repubs? Fourth, it was NOT austerity the hurt G.B., France, Spain, Greece or anybody else in Europe. It was SOCIALISM dummy. Get a clue stupid.

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...
