Could it maybe be due to the increased government involvement in practically every facet of the economy? If the government would step back, cut taxes, and let the free market work, the economy and jobs would do a "180" within 12-months or less. That's why the "roaring 20's" were ROARING!
"We're not growing fast enough and we're not adding enough jobs."
It's amazing how out of touch the current administration is with the American people and the economy. I wouldn't doubt it that President Obama is purposely dragging it out, spending us into oblivion, and collapse the system. That's for another post.
