The Unemployment Crisis Catch-22
Fantasy Figures, Real Pain
I found some interesting reads this morning and I am even more upset at our government's ability to get anything done. We are quickly slipping into a economic meltdown, but Congress is worrying about stupid crap that does not produce jobs or help stabilize the free falling economy. Predictions are that when they fail to prevent the Bush Tax Cuts from expiring the markets are going to tank because all those companies waiting to see what Congress was going to do, are going to dump even more jobs because of the higher tax burden, just in time for Christmas. Yeah! I am still holding out hope for the new Congress, since it is almost impossible for them to we worse than this one, but I am sure they will find a way.
