    A nation of part time workers thanks to Obamacare

    the stat you need to follow is U6


    No doubt NewbiePolack was yelling in horror when U6 hit 14.2% the month that Bush left office.

    Oh, wait. No he didn't.

    I guess he was a Newbie to U6 back then.

    • The 111th Congress took over with Dem majorities and at the end of the first year (2007) the U6 began flying up the chimney, hitting 13.9% at the end of 2008. Despite Obama's new theory of Bush's liability for 12 years, most people who read realize that the U6 numbers for 2009, 10, and 11 were Obama's, and were about 16% for all three years, with only brief excursions to 17% around this time in 2009 and in April 2010. The similar colors for the U6 chart during the balance of 2010, 2011 and thus far in 2012 show the outstanding job Obama did throughout his four years.

      Now that Obama was reelected, we look forward to his reaction to the mess left by Obama '08.
