One-out-of six American workers (16%) consider themselves to be among the working poor. Eighty-one percent (81%) of American adults know someone who is out of work and looking for a new job. Only 14% now believe the labor market is stronger than a year ago.
More on the Democrat strategy for 2010
In view of the story above, do you think this will work. I doubt it, but desperate measures for desperate times.
Instead they’d like to reduce each race for the House and Senate to the
personal level. Their aim is to emphasize the individual flaws of
Republican candidates. In the Democratic game plan, the economy and

Obama over Republican Sen. John McCain two years ago, and the 49 percent to 41
percent edge by which they preferred Democratic candidates for the House in that
election, according to exit polls of voters.

The House will soon consider an $8 billion child nutrition bill
