This morning, the Labor Department reported that employers unexpectedly cut 20,000 more jobs in January. The Department also issued revised data showing 150,000 jobs were lost in December instead of the 85,000 previously reported.
While the unemployment number dropped to 9.7%, it was because 366,000 people simply stopped looking for work in January, the Labor Department reported. And the number of long-term unemployed workers, those out of work for at least 27 weeks, rose to 6.3 million.
The politicians in Washington have been telling us for more than a year that they're trying to fix the problem, but it is only getting worse. We simply cannot continue to elect the same politicians, like Russ Feingold, that got us into this mess.
Check out our new web video in honor of this weekend's Big Game reminding us all what happens when we do something over and over again, expecting a different result.
If you want to send the career politicians in Washington a message, please consider contributing $10 in 2010. With your help and support, we can take back our government.
Electing the same old politicians year-after-year and expecting different results has gotten us nowhere. We need fresh ideas from proven job creators, who are willing to go to Washington and turn things around.
