This is one nasty looking chart:
The current contraction is far far worse than the prior downturns: 3.6 million — and counting — job losses as of yesterday is worse than the 2.7 million jobs lost in the 2001 recession, and far worse than the 1.6 million job losses in the 1990-1991 recession.

Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated.
