Obama: 2014 can be breakthrough year for America’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Citing progress on the economy, President Barack Obama said at his annual year-end news conference today that 2014 “can be a breakthrough year for America” after a long era of recession and slow recovery. Praising Congress for a recent, relatively modest budget compromise, the president said, “It’s probably too early to declare an outbreak of bipartisanship. But it’s also fair to say we’re not condemned to endless gridlock.”

2014 will see an expansion of gay rights and abortion which seem to be Obama's greatest priorities.

Progress on the economy? You mean the 85 billion a month the feds are spending on QE3?

A "breakthrough for America"? How?
More ILLEGALS getting benefits
A Healthcare system that isn't wanted
Destroying the moral of our military
etc., etc., etc.

The best thing for this country in 2014 is for people to go out and vote in November and make changes in Congress.

Watch for the unemployment numbers to continue to look rosy as the number of long term unemployed drop off the rolls.

While in the recession, the middle class has taken a hit in the erosion of salaries. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06...

Companies found that new hires would accept a lower hourly rate because they were just grateful to just have a job. Office clerical jobs that paid $14-$15 hr now pay $10 - $12 hr. After the ACA requirements, companies have reduced hours or eliminated benefits.

Will be interesting to see what the labor market statistics show in 2014.
