Comedian Alex Barnett rants about John Boehner's love of tanning

After a lot of recent talk concerning a possible double-dip recession, finally, some are saying there’s some good news for the U.S. economy. But is it good enough? Friday’s release of the U.S. September jobs report shows an addition of 103,000 non-farm payrolls for the month.
But CNBC says while the numbers are an improvement from August’s report of 57,000 jobs... it’s still not enough to put the U.S. economy in the clear.
“It’s much better than what we had a month ago, but it’s still not enough. It's not enough to erase the risk of recession, particularly if Europe goes down.” “No matter what these numbers say we still have a serious issue of long-term unemployment in the country.”
“These numbers are good, we will take them, but they are relative to very, very low expectations and they are certainly not good enough.”
But they were good enough for the stock market. According to The Wall Street Journal...
“U.S. stocks rose after an encouraging employment report showed that the U.S. economy added more jobs than expected last month, though weakness in the technology and financial sectors limited Friday's gains.”
And while September’s job numbers might be a sigh of relief for some, the unemployment rate remains at 9.1%... the same as August. Bloomberg says that’s not sitting well with Capitol Hill.
“The Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has been critical of this jobs report, saying our unemployment rate has been higher than 8 percent for more than 2 and a half years , far above what the Obama administration promised with the stimulus, they had been attacking those initial forecasts that were put out before that plan was passed and they are doing that both retroactively and trying to make an argument against the jobs plan the president has been trying to pass over the past two weeks.”
Despite that criticism, the Washington Post says the White House is also trying to use the report to its advantage—quoting a member of the Council of Economic Advisers.
“‘Clearly, we need faster economic growth to put Americans back to work … Today’s report underscores the President’s call for Congress to pass the American Jobs Act.’”
Politicking aside, an analyst with the Economist Intelligence Unit tells ABC News the U.S. economy must create about 200,000 jobs to actually start absorbing unemployment.

You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy.
A debate over tax increases and spending cuts is heating up. Sound familiar? As President Obama prepares to unveil a new deficit reduction plan on Monday, politicians are -- again -- sparring over the best way to reduce the deficit and create jobs.
The New York Times reported Saturday, Obama’s plan will include a new minimum tax rate for millionaires, AKA the “Buffett Tax.” Less than 24 hours later, politicians hit the TV circuit to weigh in on the expected plan. Here’s Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham. (euronews)
“Tax policy is job policy. The tax code should be reformed for one purpose -- to generate more revenue to help run the government and create jobs jobs. When you pick one area of the economy, and say we'll tax those people because most people are not those people, that's class warfare.” (CNN)
Talking point? House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan echoed the line on Fox News Sunday.
"Class warfare might make for good politics, but it makes for rotten economics.”
No word yet on how much the Buffet Rule will raise taxes. But a writer for Slate says the plan won’t get across-the-board opposition.
“But for some it will likely be a welcome bit of populism in a debt debate that has seen Republican leaders refusing to move on reducing debt by raising tax revenues. Last week, House Speaker John Boehner said that tax increases were not ‘a viable option’ for the six-person joint Congressional committee working on a plan for reducing the nation’s debt.”
The Washington Post agrees but notes the idea has little chance of getting the OK from Congress. Still, it could help shape populist message for Obama’s 2012 run and help the Pres get back some support from his own base.
“Congressional Democrats were also pleased with the proposed millionaire’s tax, calling it a welcome sign that Obama is ready to play hardball with Republicans who have taken the politically unpopular position of defending tax breaks for the wealthy.”
The Buffett Rule might be grabbing headlines, but sources are pointing out this is just one piece of Mr. Obama’s deficit-reduction plan, which as Fox News says must include poison pills for both parties to move forward.
“Any broad compromise that clears the bipartisan committee is almost certain to require Democratic agreement to savings from programs such as the Social Security pension program, along with Republican acquiescence to additional revenues, although any such trade-offs are rarely discussed openly until the last possible moment in negotiations.”
Ultimately, recommended changes will come from the congressional supercommittee set up after this summer’s debt ceiling debate. Will it be debt ceiling round two? Guess we’ll see. Their deadline -- 9 weeks and counting.

Most of us follow the nightly news closely enough to know that Monday August 1st, 2011, Congress is voting on a compromise package to extend the debt limit of the United States and stave off what could be a real disaster. Now, for the millionth time, I’ll say that the Steve Beaman Group is not about politics and therefore I don’t want to make value judgments about this deal. That’s for you. But I do want to provide you facts on this and look at how it affects you and your financial path.
The markets are preparing for the vote later today. This is biggest vote since TARP was passed. This vote will be in regards to John Boehner's debt reduction and debt ceiling bill. If it does not pass, the markets will panic sell as it would be unlikely the debt ceiling would be raised before the August 2nd deadline. Stocks started the day with an optimistic push but have since fallen back to the flat line. Technology stocks like AAPL, GOOG, AMZN and IBM are leading, along with banks like GS and JPM. How do you play this vote?

As unemployment and inflation remain high, U.S. consumers are increasingly using their credit cards for life's necessities. Now just image how Americans finances would be without government support such as 'Food Stamps' which help 45 Million of us now.
The debt ceiling debate is still roaring and the current news is a potential deal to cut only $3 trillion over TEN years. But white house sources are denying that any deal is close to completion.
Tuesday the House passed the 'Cut, Cap and Balance' bill. The bill allows a debt ceiling increase only after Congress would approve a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. However unlikely, this would surely help the United States return to fiscal sanity, a freer market and thusly prosper. The Senate is expected to vote on the bill today.
Although destructive in other ways, if the debt ceiling is not raised the U.S. will not or should not default on it's foreign obligations. As Ron Paul states, they're trying to frighten people with default.
A new Greek recovery plan rallied the euro Thursday and is supposedly going to give Greece a longer period of time to pay back their bailout loans.
It is only a matter of time before countries like Germany, who are holding the bag for Greece and other bailout countries, to leave the Euro to escape from being responsible for another nation's debt.
Gold breaks 1600 this past week and today the Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange is launching silver futures contracts. This should spell an even more bullish outlook for Silver and precious metals in general.
The U.S. Senate voted down the 'Cut, Cap and Balance' bill the House passed, Senator reid stating that it is "perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country." The debt ceiling debate will continue
