It’s nice to see true patriots like John Boehner state gods only truth: money is more important than people. When asked about the budget and the cutting of federal jobs, he didn’t hesitate when saying, “If some of those jobs are lost in this, so be it. We’re broke. It’s time for us to get serious about how we’re spending the nation’s money.” (link)
Now that’s the (Republican) spirit!
We can’t have jobs when there are deficits to address. Besides, we are talking about government jobs like meat and water inspectors, so who cares? What has clean water and healthy food ever done for us except make us obese?
No, we need to slash all jobs and all raises for the blood sucking federal workers. Unlike the bank CEOs, federal workers haven’t earned a pay raise. In addition, families don’t need planning, so we can cut family planning Title X money. If women want to be hussies, why should we pay for it. Besides, abstinence only works, so work it!
And while we are cutting, let’s cut all energy programs, Energy Star, energy research, grants to the poor and so forth. If there’s anything we learned from the uprising in Egypt is that our oil supply is safe. That’s why we should cut all rail transit funds as well. We just don’t need to save the oil. Besides, we have the armed forces to protect our oil supply, so we can’t cut military spending.
The real question is how far Obama will bend over for the Republicans and his corporate masters.
