1) No one is taking abouty the changes in revenue...herefore...you LOSE 2) Deficit when Reagan took office 126 Billion. In 1986 it was 221 Billion, in 1988 153 Billion. Last time I checked 221 > 126. Therefore Reagan Increased the deficit, and YOU LOPSE...again! 3) U.S. Debt went from .9 Trillion to 2.6 Trillion. That also proves my point that Regan INCREASED the DEBt as well as the DEFICIT. 4) Reagan raised taxes 11 times. So, every one of my points is historical correct and you FAIL again and again.

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...
