10 Long Years, What Did We Get?

T. Ernie Ford could have sung this.

There are currently 130.738 million payroll jobs in the U.S. (as of March 2011). There were 130.781 million payroll jobs in January 2000.

...the median household income in constant dollars was $49,777 in 2009. That is barely above the $49,309 in 1997, and below the $51,100 in 1998

...There are currently 7.25 million fewer payroll jobs than before the recession started in 2007, with 13.5 million Americans currently unemployed. Another 8.4 million are working part time for economic reasons, and about 4 million more workers have left the labor force

'S wonderful how Congress and the Exec Branch have wrestled the greatest economy of all time right to the ground, eh?

And that includes you, GWBush...
