That the Republican plan for Jobs, to decrease unemployment, is to Fire people. Some laughed because it was funny and seemed completely illogical and wrong-headed. I wasn’t laughing – because that IS their plan. At a time when we have soaring unemployment – their plan is to, literally, Fire People. At a time when we have a wages that are too low to support our economy, their plan is to Lower Wages on those who can least afford it, while protecting the “high-income” earners’ salaries and offering THEM tax cuts.
We don’t have enough money to pay teachers well or extend unemployment benefits, but apparently we have more than enough and can refuse due income.
