MITT PROMISED TO GET IT DOWN TO 6% IN FOUR YEARS
Here: “I can’t possibly predict precisely what the unemployment rate would be at the end of one year. I can tell you that over a period of four years, by virtue of the policies that we put in place, we get the unemployment rate down to 6 percent, or perhaps a little lower.”
BARACK DID IT IN UNDER TWO
And if the Republicans in Congress would just allow it, we could be doing so much better still: Boosting the economy by revitalizing our crumbling infrastructure . . . boosting the economy by hiking the minimum wage . . . boosting the economy by passing the Senate’s bipartisan immigration bill . . . and thereby initiating a virtuous cycle that would lead to higher wages, higher tax receipts, lower safety-net payments, and reduced deficits. Kind of like the virtuous cycle we had under Bill Clinton. (Remember?) All that stands in the way are the Republicans in Congress. Please vote.

To think that distasters only happen to someone else is human nature. But, when human nature runs into mother nature, regret normally follows.~CBS hurricane specialist Bryan Norcross
