Okay, this time I am really going to post something with a comment - honest.
I don't need to comment, because the chart speaks for itself. It depicts employment (civilian employment, that is - excluding government 'workers' and the military) in the U.S. compared to the population.
And it originates from a Harvard professor, no less. That should be enough to establish its validity for the left.
Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado I hereby proudly present EMRATIO (Civilian Employment - Population Ratio)!
Remind me again who was elected in 2008...?
