Do thousands of furloughed employees count as unemployed? Ask the communities where those people live. These figures are so "edited" as to be useless. And they are designed to make the government, regardless of party, look better. Whoever is in office wants the numbers to look good. Same with cost of living. It's more instructive to look at what they don't count, than what they do count.
