What kind of insane asylum do these loons come from? Where do these idiots think tax dollars come from? The money tree? It must be. Who will pay for these old timers who are dropping out? Social Security is doomed beyond hope.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that the number of people dropping out of the work force, which artificially depresses the unemployment rate, can be regarded as an "economic positive."
"A large percentage of that is due to younger people getting more education, which in the end is an economic positive," Carney said. "This increase in the number of people leaving the work force has been a trend and a fact since 2000, because of an aging population, which is not to say this is wholly -- that's not to say that I would wholly disregard as an issue." Carney had been asked about the 19 million underemployed or unemployed Americans, and about people who had left the work force.
"I think some of those who, I suppose, don't wish us well politically have tried to make a point about this," he also said. "The facts are that in these most recent numbers, this is not an issue of people leaving the work force; the numbers are positive across the board."

He said it in your quote - people leaving to get a better education will come back and be a net positive...

But there are people on this board who will think this is great! Mindless drones who take as Gospel anything the White House says as long as there is a left winger in there. Ignorance is bliss for the left wing whackos I guess.

It is great. Clearly 36.7% of Americans able to work choose not to. They don't need to work.
That 1% aren't the only "rich" ones.

Ask all the college kids who bought into the hope and change and voted for this fool who are looking for a job how much of a net positive they got out of the deal. They do get to pay their student loans back unless Obama lets the taxpayers take em on too. Win win for all right?

No, that's what the BLS is telling us and that number grows monthly with more people leaving the work force.

And now the BLS reports back that up. So the cry to tax the rich or create some jobs will stop now ?

Personally I'm tired of reading all that day in an out.
They need to find some new material.
