    10%.........unemployment rate!!!

    Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment Up to 10.0% in Mid-February


    With all the treads going on about the potential GOP nominee, will it really matter with a 10% unemployment rate and continuing anti-business policies of the current administration?

    Keep in mind that the Gallup poll does not adjust for seasonal hirings/firings like the official rate does, and the Gallup poll doesn't include as many people...there's is 18 years and older and only households with phones. The official Census/BLS survey is 15 years and older and is a personal visit.

    So the unemployment rate is headed back up as soon as the Republican Congress took over?

    Well, as Boehner says...

    ...So Be It...

    Indeed.........but the main point of the article is that employment conditions have "barely" improved since a year ago.
