    4 years ago, the entire R&D department, half of engineering and a third of the company I work at was let go.

    My Brother in Law, my brother and my niece's husband were laid off.

    The value of my 401 dropped by more than a third.

    Since then,

    I've gotten two good raises, an entire new R&D Department has been hired. My 401 is worth more than it was 4 years ago.

    So for me, things are better off.

    The stock market is doubled in value. Corporations are making record profits.

    When it comes to jobs, Republicans, working with the Chamber of Commerce from 2001 to 2008 helped move millions of jobs to China and close tens of thousands of factories. Those jobs are gone. They can't be "fixed" because the buildings are not even available anymore. They are simply gone.

    Now I wish, just one time, that Republicans on the USMB would explain how Romney's plan of supporting and investing in immigrants is a better plan than investing in the Republican base? Doesn't Romney believe the Republican base is worth investing in?

    You are over 15 trillion in debt and have printed worthless money 3 times to try and cover it.

    Is this typical of the kind of research your company does?


    If so, you should be unemployed.
