There is a gigantic gap between the Republican's mantra of jobs jobs jobs as their number one priority versus their all out push (conspiracy?) to do the very opposite. Granted there is a need to put checks on increasing spending but draconian cuts in government expenditures are responsible for many thousands of jobs being lost. This results in limiting expanding state governments but also adds to the accelerating increase of dreaded layoffs.
Rarely a day goes by when there is not headlined more evidence of a calculated Republican campaign to subvert job creation. Note this weeks block by the Republicans to extend the FAA budget for another year. This has had the effect of throwing out 4000 workers. This is bad news for the economy but this is only the tip of the problem. It is estimated that a ripple effect will cost another 70,000 jobs in relatively short order. For example, construction of a New Mexico airport had to be stopped as the funding for the workers has dried up.
I find it highly suspicious that the Republicans manufactured a crisis in the debt ceiling which has had the net effect of creating an unfortunate diversion away from attending to the more pressing crisis of the pressing immediate need for job creation.
I fervently hope that the calculated transparent campaign of the Republicans to wreck the economy in the hope that the President will take the hit results in the overreaching conspirators pushed back. In this connection if enough light is shone on these obvious anti - job creation actions - it might result in the conspirators being thrown out of office thereby creating a freshnew opportunity for job seekers.
