So, we are seeing baby steps, all the more reason for those in DC to pass the American Jobs Act and pass HR589. It won't last forever, and if we continue to take small steps, hopefully, this turns around. Then we can all contribute, pay taxes, pay towards social security, medicare and the deficit. Why they don't see that millions of unemployed citizens hurts this economy more than anything.

You're right Mary,

High unemployment continues to be a major contributor to what's holding the economy back. And they DO see how this hurts the economy. It's economics 101. If a college freshman, or anyone else for that matter can see it, so can Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner.

In the past two weeks, 806,000 people have filed First Time Claims.

These will be among the first of the "26ers" in April. I wonder if anyone in our government ever took a course in Economics!

I've said many times, they have overlooked the "unemployment situation", the lack of benefits for the 99ers, the dragging out of extensions, as the driver of the economy it really is. As more and more people expire, which we are seeing now, the consumer confidence continues to spiral, as does housing, spending and all the indicators that drive the almighty markets. Economists tell them, their constituents tell them, the ratings agencies tell them, deaf ears! If we ignore it, it will go away, but it's backfired, three years later, we're here, we have no where to go, we'd love to work, no jobs and now people are taking to the streets. Yes, not all about unemployment, but the message is out there, again, they will enact laws to try and get the protesters out of the camps, they will pull generators due to fire violations, remove tents for sanitation purposes and they will probably find some obscure law preventing them from serving food as a health code violation. Now it's up to us, continue this fight on line, explore every avenue to get our stories out there and our discontent with Congress well known. 9%, it should be 0%.

Wait to next week when it comes at that they created many jobs! This will be very stupid since most of these will be seasonal Christmas jobs. This will be bloated for the next two months. Then comes January when nobody is buying and we will be worse off. This will be made worse when the Congress and Senate does not extend the benefits for the new 99ers or much less.

Us from the 99ers Class of 2010 know all about this.

How many days left to Christmas that the Congress and Senate can act? Not many. Remember the Republicans already got theirs for two straight years with tax cuts to the very rich.years. The Class of 2011
and 2012, expects less.
