unemployment remains high at 7.8 percent...even so Obama hands our work permits to foreign workers and is planning amnesty for another 8Million foreign workers.

NEWPAPER: "Republicans hate bad news." ___Have you heard of the Federal Reserve?, Are you familiar with the term..quantitative easing-do you understand the government is printing money as a last ditch effort to try to stimulate a dead economy? Subtract back out the money printing from gdp & we're in a recession.

It's not Obama's fault that Mitt Romney and his friends have been so successful and shipping our jobs and their millions overseas. THAT is what's wrong with our economy. And cutting taxes and spending won't change that one bit.
