Some key movement on wages came this week, as the Congressional Budget Office released a report this week projecting 500,000 lost jobs if the $10.10 minimum wage goes through, even as Walmart signaled a possible willingness to back the measure.
It's getting harder every day to be a liberal.
The term "cherry-picking" is often applied to the practice of presidents who use inaccurate, narrowly drawn, fuzzy statistics and claims to cover up their economic failures.
President Obama's bogus promises, predictions and claims are legendary, but perhaps you've forgotten his "sky is falling" forecast about the $85 billion budget sequestration.
The unraveling of Barack Obama's dysfunctional presidency started when it became clear his policies were not improving a jobless economy that is still on the Federal Reserve's temporary life-support system.

Kessler noted that economists still debate how significant job losses would be, but that few question they exist.
