There are so many unemployed/underemployed because BO has done zero to help the situation and everything to hurt it. They did not vote to end unemployment, they voted to no longer extend it beyond the two years it had bloated to. A rise in the min wage ? This helps noone and hurts the very groups most impact3d by this endless recession. BO or rather MO lowered foodstamps to pay for her exersize program. BO handed out many billions to his backers in the so-called green biz. If only we had known it meant green as in cold hard cash pumped into benefactor's pockets. Big corporate farmers like Robert Redford ? And you actually bring up pharma whose bestest friend on the planet is BO ? I know fringe lefties like yourself eschew reality for HuffPo and such but really man, you should consider checking things before you offer up this stuff.If the teas benefit the rich so much why are there no more of them elected ? If the left benefit the lower and middle class then why are they the only ones who see no recovery ? Hate to break it to you but you have.it all wrong and basically backwards.
There arent many elected because of the exact reason you gave, their agenda is to benefit the rich at the expense of everyone else, They are only successful in heavily red areas.
There is no recovery because most good paying jobs were sent to china, phillipines, india and other places. Why do you think there are so many unemployed and underemployed in this country.
The teaparty only talks about jobs in abstract, what they DO is vote against anything for the middleclass and poor and pass bills to do the same.
The teaparty house voted to end unemployment, they killed a raise in the minimum wage, the lowered food stamps and the voted against ending billion dollar subsidies for Big Oil that rapes us at the pump at will, big corporate farmers and big pharmaceutical companies. No sir its you that has absolutely backwards.
