republicans. you have to admire them. they just make shit up and the media(fox news,cnbc) just goes along. http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/04/05/ryan-the-ridiculous/ Except briefly during the Korean War, the United States has never achieved unemployment as low as Ryan and co. are claiming. The Fed believes that the lowest unemployment rate compatible with price stability is between 5 and 6 percent â that is, twice what Ryan is claiming he will achieve. This is ridiculous; itâs megalomaniacal. If Obama tried to claim that his policies would achieve anything like this, heâd be laughed out of office. Awesome. .
