GOP Job Killers
You would have to be an idiot not to realize that the GOP's latest proposals would swell the unemployment rolls. Even Boehner admits the budget cuts would kill jobs in the federal sector but frankly my dears, he doesn't give a damn.
At a press conference in the lobby of RNC headquarters Tuesday morning, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) shrugged this off as collateral damage.You would also have to be an idiot to believe a word he says. Boehner is either lying about the numbers or just too stupid to check. In fact:
"In the last two years, under President Obama, the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs," Boehner said. "If some of those jobs are lost so be it. We're broke."
...[T]here were only 20,000 more federal employees under Obama in 2010 than under George W. Bush in 2002 -- and that, on a per capita basis (federal employees per 1,000 Americans), it's at the lowest level at least since 1962.I'm going with lying. Boehner can't be that stupid and he has no incentive to tell the truth since he pays no price for his perfidy.
