    that I any influence.

    If I did have influence I'd have started government sponsored work programs a year ago. Anyone that had been on unemployment longer than 9 months would be given the opportunity to join such a program.

    The sad thing the way current society treats folks that are unemployed.

    I don't have to give rightwingers ammunition, the white house and congress has done a bang up job on their own. They piddled away their political capital to be bipartisan. In the end most people remember who saved their bacon and that's why FDR got elected four times.

    New improved bipartisanship! Now comes in a convenient suppository!!! -unbozo

      Many read this site.  Now it's easier and cheaper to raid this site for ways to discredit liberals than for ways to get us out of the Great Recession.

      That said, I agree with you that the current administration and Congress, faced with dramatically changed circumstances between the weeks of campaigning and the days after winning the election, have not exactly stepped up their game anywhere near enough to meet those increased needs.  And that will undoubtedly be felt in the November returns.  Sucks being President or Congresscritter.  Somebody up there needs to really recognize that -- at the level the unemployed do -- and modify the game plan accordingly.
