6.66 Million

That's the number of unemployed in the U.S. But that's not the spin of the story. The story is excited that only 631,000 newly unemployed filed for benefits last week. But 6.66 million is a record.

We have a generation of Americans who have never looked for work in a 9% unemployed environment. Yet President Obama and the Democrats are using gimmicks to push legislation they haven't even read--legislation that will increase dramatically the expenses of operating a business. That's not leadership.
