On Capitol Hill, any trace of job-oriented stimulus has melted with the winter snow. Instead, the city's hot for deficit reduction, and the press has caught the fever.

Articles mentioning unemployment have plummeted nearly 70 percent since last summer, while articles mentioning the deficit have doubled over the same time, according to a National Journal report.

The upshot is that the production economy thawed. But the labor economy froze. And the political will to fix the labor market faded in 2010. The press was partly complicit in this fade-out effect. But it's hard to blame the media too much for resisting to write feverishly about nonexistent efforts to fix a static unemployment problem.

So true, so true... It hurts my heart that this great nation is willingly ignoring the plights of so many hard-working, law-abiding citizens. They are without benefits, health insurance, and hope at this point. Sad

Those in power don't want to KNOW the #s even of l/t unemp! The victims of this UNEMP CRISIS are just collateral damage and left behind. I hate that IF you are old enough, you are LUCKY to be able to claim your SS --- with the added insult of 'reduced rate'? Heaven help those that can't help themselves...
