Katie nor anyone else at TH will delve into how much money Bernanke has made since being made Head of the Federal Reserve. When appointd to this position, he ad to pput his "holdings", investments, etc. into a "blind trust". Blind Ha! Ha!. This is suppose to keep Bernanke from profiting from his position as if the manager of his trust doesn't have a clue that Bernanke WANTS his holdings to grow. This should be litle Katies top priorty. To find out WHO has Benanke's trust and WHAT % has it grown, since he became Fed Chairman

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...
