The sputtering “recovery” claimed by the White House is inexorably grinding to a halt, an inescapable fact that even the most deft manipulation of employment numbers can’t conceal. Yet the mass unemployment and underemployment of American job-seekers hasn’t deflated the enthusiasm for anti-growth policies from either this administration or Congress. Complicating matters is the enthusiasm both have displayed for sustained mass immigration, even in the face of steep declines in American household income.
