"Only 36,000 lost their jobs today..."

Quote of the day: "Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 lost their jobs today which is really good" (Democratic Senator, Harry Reid).

Tell that to the 36,000 who lost their jobs or to the millions more who still can't find jobs!

Yes, I know what he meant, i.e. that 36,000 is good compared to all the jobs we have been losing--but remember, this is the same Congress and President that wasted 800 billion dollars of your tax dollars promising that this money would prevent unemployment from ever rising above 8%! The results may also be skewed by the fact that the Census Bureau is hiring hundreds of thousands of temporary census takers.
