I am no mathematician, but I’m sure this is a massive waste of taxpayer money. To add insult to injury during that five years, not a single proposal from these same Quixotesque characters to pass a jobs or employment bill, nor a bill to fix the banking deregulation that created the economic collapse of 2008. Not one. Not one in five years.
Alabama’s Nick Saban 0-41 … fired. Georgia’s Mark Richt 0-41 … fired. The Atlanta Falcons’ Mike Smith 0-41 … fired. House Republicans 0-41 … ? In the real world … fired. In their Quixotesque world …
… Let’s hold the economy hostage! Eight hundred and eighty thousand people unemployed in the blink of an eye. And the ripple effect: 500,000-plus tanks of gas not sold, 500,000-plus stores not being shopped in, 500,000-plus restaurants not serving a meal, thousands upon thousands not taking their vacation to that national park they love, daycare classes missing children, etc.
American workers deserve much, much better than this.
