    It's so unreal. I'm not really worried for myself, but some of the people I work with would just be devastated if they lost their jobs and these people in Washington give themselves a raise. If you took everyone on my row and added our pay together I don't think we'd make as much as someone in Congress. And we all work a full week. It's just not right.

    Obama did say he "expects his economic recovery plan to save or create 3.5 million jobs over the next two years." I guess he meant saving Government jobs.

    Wrong again, Xbot. I know you don't like Obama, but please check out your facts.

    Right here in Florida we will have construction jobs created to work on 595 and other highway projects. Not government jobs. Private citizens who can't find other work.

    I have no idea how the government is being hit on jobs loss. Is there any data anyone has?

    Don't be silly. I love Obama! Obama is GREAT!

    Funny how the government doesn't like to post how many jobs are lost. Maybe there are known, eh? Or maybe Obama is growing the government. A couple trillion dollars can go a long way. Maybe I'll get a government job and work 3 days a week. :tongue:

    Well, BO is different.

    He's the first POTUS who refuses to help the economy and keeps trying to hurt it.

    Government loosing their jobs, ha.ha.ha! Personally I would love to see our entire congress & senate loose their jobs about right now.

    We are moving very quickly into a welfare nation--that means more government jobs! They have got to hire a lot of people to re-distribute all this money they have mortgaged from the American tax-payer.

    I hate to keep bringing up Jimmy Carter--but he did the same thing. He gave his staff a huge raise while the economy was collapsing. And I sure don't remember any people working for the federal government loosing their jobs back then either.

    Obama's plan is working exactly as he intended it to work.
