“Bain, Barack And Jobs” by Paul Krugman


     Kudos to Paul Krugman for his excellent column that explains how the conservatives lie about the condition of the economy, especially with regard to the jobs situation.

     The so-called “recovery from recession” (which Krugman identified as  a depression in his 12/12/11 column) “has been so slow that it mostly doesn’t seem like a recovery at all,” is another clear acknowledgment of the facts.

     Therefore, what is needed is a massive federal jobs program  that could begin a genuine recovery from the depression gripping the country.
