The Job Killing Republican Sequester


Recommended Posts

In case you were wondering, yes, there's good evidence that the sequester is hurting the jobs economy. The New York Times' Catherine Rampell puts together some evidence, explaining about the graph above that:

As you can see, in the last few months, the defense-sensitive industries have been shedding jobs, while the rest of the country’s employers have been adding jobs over all. The trends for the previous months are noisy, but if you smooth them out, it looks as if the defense-sensitive industries and the other industries were both doing about equally well, with the exception of a huge downward spike in employment in the defense-sensitive industries around the time of the summer 2011 debt ceiling crisis.

That's private-sector industries dependent on government, specifically defense, money. Government workers are also hurting, as you'd expect.

 

In June 2011, there were 55,000 federal workers who wanted to be working full-time but were stuck at part-time. In June 2012, the number was 58,000.

 

This year, 148,000 federal workers who wanted full-time work couldn't get the hours.

 

Sequestration is hurting the private sector. It's hurting the public sector. Republicans chose this over closing some corporate tax loopholes.

You do realize that the defense sector IS 'private sector'...yes?

 

And thus, your argument boils down to 'when the private sector absorbs those private sector jobs'. You realize this, yes?

We warned the House Republicans that the sequester would kick employment, both public and private, in the balls, but they refused to negotiate, indeed even to listen.

 

Now things have developed exactly as they were warned, and they're trying as usual to avoid responsibility for their inactions.

 

Cons have no credibility left, if indeed they ever had any.

See? Even Cons can admit their errors.

 

Sometimes.

 

But your likes and dislikes are irrelevant to this discussion. This discussion, since you don't know, is about the effects of the Republican sequester on employment, both public and private. Try sticking to it.

Of course the sequester is bad for the.economy. It's supposed to be. Raise taxes cut services equals austerity. This wasn't a gop thing at all. Both parties wanted this. The super Congress is 6 repubs 6 dems.

 

...but you know the libturds... they HAVE to blame someone else if it's not going their way!!

 

You've already heard it here on the forum... libturds are blaming the GOP for this failure of a bill aka osama obama care!! :lol:

Yup, you can't make this shit up!

Trying to change the subject from 'sequester' to "ACA", eh? (Or maybe you don't realize that they are different bits of legislation, take your choice.)

"Don't know the difference", then. Thanks for clarifying.

 

Stop being an idiot, you moron!

 

I know what is the difference.. why don't you rather answer my question?

 

Had your boy anything to do with the sequester? A simple YES or NO will do!

Wait until interest rates go up when the economy gets going and the half a trillion spent on interest alone on the national debt annually turns into 2 trillion annually.......

 

We'll see how you DUMBASSES spin THAT economic fiasco. :lol:

 

How much you want to bet their solution is to borrow MORE money..... :lol:

It is Democrats that are in control of the Government.

The Job Killing Republican Sequester

 

Obama got his full set of economic policies 4 1/2 years ago. They failed, so trolls have to bleat and lie that a tiny spending cut is causing our problems.

 

 

Sequestration is hurting the private sector. It's hurting the public sector. Republicans chose this over closing some corporate tax loopholes.

 

 

Then let's just go bankrupt. There, happy? :glare:
