http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2011/09/28/330573/republican-crowd-cheers-government-layoffs/?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=pulsenewsThe fact that Republicans would cheer laying off anyone at a time when unemployment is at 9 percent and the economy is reeling may seem out-of-touch, but the party has repeatedly made it clear that it sees a fundamental difference between workers in the public and private sectors. The GOP’s insistence on steep budget cuts has forced more than 500,000 workers to lose their jobs at the local, state, and federal levels.
To presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R), those workers aren’t part of the “real economy,” and he’s promised to layoff even more. And now, the GOP is threatening to enact massive cuts to the U.S. Postal Service, a move that would put even more people out of work.
They are cheering because now these people will have an opportunity to get jobs in the private sector.
