“Agreed. For all the talk "competition lowers costs!", despite there being over 20 insurance companies, premiums keep going up 11~17% every year...

“Glad you said that. I keep saying the same thing for years now - our government has been manipulating the numbers of the GDP, unemployment and CSI for years now, ever since they abandoned the gold standard. They felt that no one wants to hear the truth! And there are a lot of people out there who actually believe we have less than a 10% unemployment in this country.
10% have no impact on anything but then who paid attention to math?”

“True, which is more reason why these union guys should take concessions. If Ford goes under, who do you think they will work for? Who is hiring anymore outside of certain defense companies and the medical industry? All execs at my company who made over $100k had to take a 15% pay cut while those making under $100k did not have to take a cut. Because so many of us were making $100k+ (many at over $500k) we had to do this for the company to survive. I couldn't afford to take the cut but it was better than being jobless. The unions have to remember this.”

“It does not matter how you count unemployment. Under Bush unemployment was as low as 4.6%. Using the exact same measurement, it is now 9.8%, and will likely top 10% on that scale.

If you want to use your scale, fine, tell us how much it was under Bush. Nice exercise, but it's not going to change anything.”
