Many voters were excited about the "change" last Fall's elections brought to the US Congress and many state governments. Well, I wonder how happy some voters will be once the Republican lead budget cuts hit - nationally and locally. But, you get what you vote for..........right?

The latest employment report is in, and it shows that we added 1.3 million private-sector jobs over the course of 12 months of consecutive growth in 2010 -- more jobs than were created during all of President Bush's eight years in office.
We added 113,000 private-sector jobs in December, and our unemployment rate fell by 0.4 percentage points to 9.4 percent. Also, October and November job numbers were revised from original predictions to reflect additional job growth.
While these numbers show that employment continues to grow steadily and that we're headed in the right direction, millions of Americans are still out of work -- and we still have a long way to go toward full recovery.
I've pasted the latest discussion points below -- take a look, and pass them on.
