Calling out the Right, Republicans and other jerks in politics

republicans: Unemployment Rate Too Low

with one comment

What this country needs right now is fewer jobs.

More non-working Americans will undoubtedly boost this country’s morale, strengthen the economy and return us on the path to fiscal solvency.  With fewer people working, they will have more time to buy things…with all the money they…used to have…I mean, with all the unemployment benefits they will collect…which should be cut…okay, I don’t get it.

Following up President Obama’s rollout of his 2012 budget, republicans are proposing HUGE spending cuts for 2011.  Weeper of the House John Boner Boehner (r-OH):  “If some of those jobs are lost so be it. We’re broke.” (emphasis added).  He, of course, was speculating on the loss of the “200,000 federal jobs” created last year as a result of some $60 billion in cuts republicans are proposing.  Of course, he’s inserting a little “big government” propaganda in for his tea party supporters:  only 20,000 new federal jobs were created last year (remember, there’s the truth and…the truth: republican-version).  Independent analysis revealed that the level of cuts republicans are angling for – mammoth cuts to job training, infrastructure improvements, homeland security, NASA, Head Start, the EPA, energy assistance for the poor, public health protection, scientific research and development, to name just a few (and then there’s the amendments) – could result in the loss of 1 million jobs.

One million jobs.  Honestly, what could be better to get America back on track?

Welcome to your Tea Party Nation.
