On Friday, the Washington Examiner reported that according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a full 85.9 million Americans had said they did not want a job last month Ė 93 percent of all of those who had dropped out of labor force. The labor force participation rate in the United States is at a three-decade low thanks to President Obamaís job-killing economic measures. Pew Research Center found that 39 percent of 16-24 year olds didnít want to work. That number had skyrocketed ten percent over the last 14 years. Among men, 28.5 percent said they didnít want a job.

Naturally, Breitbart has proof somewhere that Obama is responsible for young people not wanting to work.

Oh yes - we must remember that he caused the Great Recession, Great Depression, and even the Fall in the Garden of Eden.

Labor participation at record lows.

Record levels of debt

Trillion dollar deficits

Fed Reserve printed money for years and years; called it 'Quantitative Easing'

Quantitative Easing program now ended... Interest rates likely to rise.

... Tell me how this can possibly end well

How about R&D into developing a time machine.

That would be so cool on so many levels.

Yes, let's comply with the Republican campaign to impeach Obama and reduce taxes for the wealthy - that will solve everything including sun rash, economy problems, and the heart break of psoriasis.

No worries. They'll want to work once the inflation kicks in. Then they'll have to work.

Print, print, print your way right out of all debt,
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Debt payment's a sure bet.

End all tax shelters thereby solving the nation's debt and the government won't need to print money.

Do Republicans sincerely believe they can afford to lower taxes. Oh wow.

It would seem our own government is confusing debt and deficit, saying they'll lower taxes as soon as the deficit is eliminated.

OK, and what about the debt?

Reducing military and other government spending might help too. Just sayin'.

Ending the military industrial complex would comply with the teachings of our Founding Fathers and greatly reduce the debt. Ending overseas tax shelters will end it completely and give us a huge surplus.

Especially "other government spending," seeing as how the military budget is only about 19% of the 2013 budget.

Plenty of room in there for cuts, mind. But it ain't the cure-all some folks think it is.

Thats my question. Perhaps putting some money on it would be a good idea but I doubt that will happen.

Eliminating the deficit was a political vote-getter cause it could be eliminated within an electoral mandate. Not so the debt. However, maybe a government could promise to reduce the debt by X dollars within a mandate? Or even promise to reduce the debt by X dollars assuming A, B, or C don't happen?
But certainly we can't stop at the deficit. We need to nibble away at the debt, however slowly, however modestly, but we cannot just stop at the deficit and satisfy ourselves with that.

That logic is like actively seeking to become a heroin addict so something positive can result from detox and kicking the habit.

True. The sacred machinery of capitalism cannot succeed without bribes from the government.

Capitalism is a pretty weak ideology if it can succeed only by having government spend more than it can tax.

I can't imagine anybody WANTS to work. I don't want to work.

I'd not work at all if I could afford it.

Forgive him. He's not the hardest ice cube in the tray. Too funny though...in one sentence, they don't want to work and the next sentence it's because Obama took the jobs. Perhaps he should make up his mind.
