  •  Not just about gov services (1+ / 0-)

    Government employees - teachers & DMV clerks - spend their salaries on food, shoes, housing, etc just like employees of a private businesses do. Everyone knows that a factory closing in a town is bad not just for the people who used to work there, but also for the restaurants, shops & real estate agents in that town. But exactly the same holds true for laying off gov employees - so how can the Rightwingnuts insist that gov layoffs benefit the economy?. The Teabaggers pretend that tax money disappears down a giant black hole, but anyone with a brain knows that's not true.

      In Wisconsin, we're starving under Walker, who has managed to wreck the economy, jobs, and rights in just over two years by attacking and firing state employees.

      The ripple effect will be with us for a long time.

      The problem with going with your gut as opposed to your head is that the former is so often full of shit. - Randy Chestnut
