How's That Hope and Change Working?

Hope and change baby!

U.S. adds 244,000 jobs in April; jobless rate 9.0%

(MarketWatch) – The U.S. economy gained 244,000 jobs in April, the biggest increase in almost a year, but the nation’s unemployment rate rose to 9.0%, according to government data. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch predicted a net gain of 175,000 jobs. Payrolls for March and February, based on a survey of business establishments, were also revised up by a combined 46,000, the Labor Department reported Friday. Yet a separate survey of U.S. households found that the labor force declined in April by 190,000 to 139.7 million, pushing the jobless rate up to 9.0% from 8.8% in March. It was the first increase since last November.
Remember this from a year ago?

the illegal in the whitehouse wants to try and pass “Dream Act II” and give all the illegals amnesty. At a time when we are broke and unemployment is so high. I don’t want it any shape or form,I don’t care if we were ticking along {which we’re not} He has his hollywood people like Eva Longoria pushing this. She has a pretty good opinion of herself. Start pounding your Congress people on illegals. They are working hard and fast here.

And then there’s taking your drive by the mile… but you can deduct up to $500 of mileage per year (without itemizing, more if you do) for going to work because that’s an EXPENSE, so what the heck?
