Private industry jobs are the highest they have been since March 2009….

In August 2011 the civilian labor force was higher than it was in March 2006…. Higher…

But the total number of people working is far less than it was at it’s peak which occurred in January 2008. at.. 137,996,000….

So our economic woes are because of a reduced government workforce. One caused by a loss of revenue coming in to the treasury, which was caused by tax cuts… Our economy would be humming along right now pretty well, if we still had all those US Government worker we still had on our roles when George Bush turned over the keys to Barack Obama on January 2009…

Tax cuts are responsible for our job losses.

Obviously the only problem we have with our economy currently is that Republicans have cut taxes… Remove those cuts, and we will have jobs.
