That’s a shame since your children and grandchildren are going to be paying off the $787B price tag for decades to come.
If they can even afford to pay taxes that is.
UPDATE: Here’s some more good news (*cough*) in the Era of Hopeandchange.
The number of young Americans without a job has exploded to 52.2 percent — a post-World War II high, according to the Labor Dept. — meaning millions of Americans are staring at the likelihood that their lifetime earning potential will be diminished and, combined with the predicted slow economic recovery, their transition into productive members of society could be put on hold for an extended period of time.
The number represents the flip-side to the Labor Dept.’s report that the employment rate of 16-to-24 year olds has eroded to 47.83 percent — the lowest ratio of working young Americans in that age group, including all but those in the military, since WWII.
And worse, without a clear economic recovery plan aimed at creating entry-level jobs, the odds of many of these young adults — aged 16 to 24, excluding students — getting a job and moving out of their parents’ houses are long. Young workers have been among the hardest hit during the current recession — in which a total of 9.5 million jobs have been lost.
Why do I find it increasingly funny sad that those most supportive of Obama in 2008 were young people and those making over $250,000. Now they are the ones most likely to get shafted. LOL. Boo hoo hoo.
