jwputnam: Ask the defense industry how many jobs will no longer be created when DOD stops buying weapons systems. Ask our great aircraft industry how many jobs will be lost when the government stops subsidizing airlines and promoting our products to foreign operators. Now ask the small business owners located around military basis if they are willing to let those bases shut down. Ask all the firms in America that support our government buy selling the taxpayer products what they think about cutting back on spending. Better yet ask our returning service members what they think about ending the wars in Iraq and Afganistan. Where will they work when they are told they are no longer needed? Ask construction companies how soon they would like the government construction contracts to stop wherever the government happens to be a prevailing employer. You Republicans think you represent all the people, well you don't. There are a lot of folks that owe their livelyhood to the government and it's ability to create employment all over the country. Now the Republicans are planning on cutting thousand of more government jobs by starving the USPS. When all the government workers end up without a job, you will find a lot less money on the street to support small business. But then what do Republicans care, they just want to help the wealthy top 2 percent of population who create NO jobs. Don't agree, then ask the largest group of these wealthy folks, people who make their fortunes on the stock market. They sit in front of their computer like you do all day and just gamble until they strike it rich and they only pay a 15 percent tax rate! What is your rate? The problem with Republicans is they never think things through. They have one thought, win. Party, party never country.
