U.S. Unemployment Rate – now at 9.2%

by ECT Economic Advisor

Our Nations Unemployment rate rose to 9.2% for the first time in 2011.  The highest it’s been all year.

3 – Due to the costs of implementing the so-called ‘Obamacare’ our own Vail Valley Medical Center has recently shed an additional 22 local Jobs.  (Click Here)

4 – Your child’s future now facing Trillions more in long-term debt – your child will have to pay due to the Presidents so-called ‘stimulus program’.
