So, is it more difficult to add the first 50 jobs, or the second 50 jobs?

Did Obama actually contribute to the massive job growth in the energy industry, or the huge positive impact to the economy beginning in 2008? Of course not. He did everything in his power to impede energy progress. Thus, please omit these gains when attributing US economic gains to BHO - that is if you want to be fair and taken seriously.

The Obama question is interesting. He created Jobs but the labor participation rate went down during his presidency. How's that possible? Also the poverty rate went up. Could it be most of the jobs he created were part time?

I saw it first hand. Companies converted FT positions to PT positions in order to get around providing full benefits.

Looks like that low participation has continued too. When Trump took office Labor Participation was 62.9% and now it is 63% for the most recent data I saw.

Yeah I know it was going down during W too. With all the magic going on with the economy now why hasn't Trump returned these numbers back to the glory days? Or should we still not believe in this job marked like we didn't under Obama?

So in other words, they are delaying a vote, so he'll not cooperate, so they can then add more charges (like the obstruction because he's not cooperating) and then use that to justify a vote.

Possible translation: We wanted to impeach for alleged obstruction but didn't want to if popular opinion was against it. This latest round of fake news is intended to move the needle and allow us to impeach for the initial reason. Yeah, no politics being played there.

Interesting in that it looks like from 2012 to current PT jobs have ranged between 270k and 260k.
If you’re quoting government numbers from say BLS and not looking at numbers accumulated by private firms with sound data definitions then you have no clue what the real trends show. Companies got around a lot of overhead by taking 3 FT jobs with benefits and converting them to 4 less than FT or contract jobs without benefits. But the government would look at hours worked and call that a +1 in FT jobs. It’s a scam like everything else.
