WASHINGTON — Strong job growth lifted U.S. consumer confidence this month, as Americans looked past the economy’s dismal first quarter performance.

The University of Michigan says that its index of consumer sentiment rose slightly to 82.5 in June from 81.9 in May. That is still below April’s reading of 84.1, which had been the highest in almost a year.

According to the American Thinker, all job growth in the last 14 years has gone to immigrants (both legal and illegal). No wonder our middle class is shrinking.

It's also been shown that the vast majority of new jobs since ACA are Part Time. Thanks ACA and thanks libs.

Reminder - We now have more people on Welfare than ever before and we now have more people on Disability than ever before. Thanks libs.

ThinkFree does not think legal immigrants can be middle class.

ThinkFree ....... please just think for once. US population 2000 275,000,000.
2010 300,000,000. Now let's show you how percentages work thinker.
Lets say for argument that welfare and disability percentages are 2 % each.
275,000,000 x 2% = 5,500,000
300,000,000 x 2% = 6,000,000
See thinker if the percentage of both groups stay the same, we have more people on welfare and disability than ever before.
See you may be a free thinker but you are not a smart thinker.
