Think unemployment is bad? Think what could’ve been…

8.3% unemployment sure does suck.  But ponder the following…

– The last month of the Bush administration, about 800,000 jobs were lost
– If that trend had continued, the unemployment rate today would be 29%
– If that trend had continued, by year 2023, not a single American would be working.

Yes, the stimulus worked.  No one is happy with 8.3% unemployment, but… it could’ve been a hell of a lot worse.
