Currently, 90-million Americans are no longer looking for work. Making our labor-force participation-rate the lowest since 1979. Also in March, 385,000 more folks filed new unemployment-claims, while the number of people living in fed-defined poverty, reached 50-million, a number last seen in the 1960's. All categories mentioned, along with, now-bankrupt Stockton, California, will likely seek federal money, from a nation that itself, is being policy-driven toward bankruptcy. Unbelievable that the Administration, Congress, and America's voters, could let this happen, but thanks, primarily, to a sleep-walking citizenry, it has! And what is D.C. doing to rescue a nation sliding off its fiscal and moral foundation? The Federal Reserve continues to print $85-billion-a-month to buy bonds from itself, and the Administration, along with higher taxes, just proposed a $100-million brain study. Nice idea; wrong time, wrong message. Irrespective, the research will not be done in D.C., since it lacks sufficient subjects with cranial- matter in working-order.
