    • On April 20, 2010, by sassysally50 - Google: msnbc Recovery? Most metro areas still losing jobs Although the economy is starting to expand, businesses are squeezing additional work out of the workers they have, not hiring more. All we can do is ..Call and Fax Congress for additional weeks for everyone that have Exhausted ALL Tiers ..In the meantime the Bills go unpaid ..Nothing much you can do about that..No jobs in your area and no benefits to pay for your basic needs ..Sad!!!

    • On May 06, 2010, by mraith - Jobs created or saved don't do any good unless they are sustainable in the private sector. If the economy can't bear up the additional labor, i.e. there is no real or productive work for those who fill jobs created or saved, they will loose those created or saved jobs in a very short time and the stimulus is thereby nullified...just as we have seen in the first two stimulus packages. Jobs and benefits don't do workers any good if companies can't keep them for more than a year because of lack of revenue. A true stimulus wouldn't cost a cent. The government simply needs to deregulate; everything. This would spur growth at a tremendous rate, slowly at first but then with growing momentum. Costs would go down in every sector; in every industry and service. When the price of business goes down the cost of goods goes down. The next step is to disband minimum wage and unions, that would bring out our true potential to rebuild our economy and allow all Americans to begin to build wealth.
