    Bain investment in GS Industries LOST 700 jobs.

    or 700 jobs lost because of Bains investment in GS Industries?

    For some reason that very simple point is lost on MANY people!

    So I guess the question is too difficult for people to answer i.e.
    Which is a bigger number 90,000 people with jobs or 700 people with no jobs!

    NO wonder there is unemployment! Evidently MOST people can't do simple adding and subtracting!

    All I know is the government told me that they created 25 million jobs and a welfare dollar creates an extra forty cents.

    With these numbers its vacation time.

    So I take it that your arithmetic skills are sharp enough to know that 90,000 jobs is a bigger number then 700 jobs lost??

    The whole point is the MSM and mathshriftless Democrats seem to think of the 115 companies Bain invested in more jobs were lost by these heartless evil capitalists!
    YET more jobs (that is if 90,000 is more then 700???) were created then lost!

    If we work with the premise that bain capital destroys jobs, then Obamas recent appointment proves democrats favor destroying jobs.

    I refuse to let them asswipes have it both ways.

    Obama healthcare could worsen U.S. debt
    10 Apr.`12 WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Instead of curbing government spending, President Barack Obama's healthcare law could add up to $530 billion to the federal debt over ten years, a Republican expert on U.S. government benefit programs said on Tuesday.
