Mike's Blog Round Up
October 6, 2014

Mahablog: Governor Bobby Jindal calls President Obama a “science denier” while Louisiana disappears into the sea.

No More Mister Nice Blog: Tom Delay once said Americans should “see Christ through me.” Now he’s back to declare they should see Karl Marx through President Obama.

Economist’s View: Is the traditional link between falling unemployment and rising wages really broken?

Quartz: When it comes to cutting unemployment, President Obama is out-Reaganing Reagan.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“If government employment under Mr. Obama had grown at Reagan-era rates, 1.3 million more Americans would be working as schoolteachers, firefighters, police officers, etc., than are currently employed in such jobs." (Paul Krugman, March 2012)
