Truth in Government

    Finally, some refreshing honesty from a federal government cabinet department:

    Quite frankly, the entire Obama administration has been a work-in-progress for three and a half years now, and perhaps there's no better example than the Department of Labor, given the dismal employment situation.  In his Friday column, James Taranto cited a piece by James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute that included the following chart showing the Obama team's projected unemployment figures versus reality.

Work in Progress indeed.  Or, given May's unemployment increase from 8.1% to 8.2%, a name change to Work in Regress might be appropriate.   But in the meantime, given the fact that the Senate has now gone nearly three years without voting a budget, perhaps the Senate Budget Committee could take a cue from the transparency of the Department of Labor and rename their blog “(This page intentionally left blank.)”
