Hmmm. Here on Earth in the USA, private sector jobs have declined since 2009 by 1.7 million. That's 3 TIMES the losses in public sector jobs, 600k. THREE TIMES AS BAD and we are doing "just fine"??? We need MORE public employees? I guess in Reid's home planet EVERYONE works for the government???
What we need here on terra firma are more people with REAL jobs making REAL wages and paying REAL taxes so we can afford to hire more public employees including cops, teachers, and firemen. (And while Reid is spacing out, Biden is lying with stats on the same day on the same boondoggle bill)
I suggest we not let this disaster go to waste. I think we oughtta use this opportunity to elect, in 2012, only Earth-people who understand only simple things that make sense.
