...a government official attributed the sharp increase largely to administrative backlogs. Some people don't file claims right away during the holiday season and state unemployment offices are open fewer hours, leading to paperwork delays.
First it was the snow, now it' the holiday season's fault!

Actual unemployed figures much closer to 25 percent. IMHO, and not due for significant improvement anytime soon, unless the picture at the end of the tunnel suddenly becomes much brighter, with changes in policy that indicate the White House is interested in reality.

Hey! All those temps who were thrown out of work right after the "holidays" now have to go back on unemployment.
The US Second Great Depression marches merrily on.

3) Rhetoric from Talk Radio that promotes violence
4) Fox News negativity
5) The Tea Party promoting a climate of hate
6) Rush Limbaugh wanting Obama to fail
7) The NRA’s pro gun stance making business to fearful to hire anyone
8) Vitriol political climate caused by the GOP taking control of congress
9) Congress reading the US Constitution.
