We Need Public Institutions

By Glenn

The solution to this problem is obvious. More tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, while slashing education and job training.

With more than 12.7 million Americans unemployed, companies have no trouble attracting applicants….While these workers don’t need college degrees, they need at least two years of specialized training plus strong math, reading and writing skills.

Workers can always take out another loan and pray their job lasts long enough to pay it off.


ON the very same day Romney said of Obama

he wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.

I don’t think the contrast could be any sharper.

***2nd UPDATE***

In a conversation today I remembered an early incarnation of the Romney plan. Speaker John Boehner had released a jobs plan. Here is how it was supposed to work.

Decreasing the number and compensation of government workers. A smaller government workforce increases the available supply of educated, skilled workers for private firms, thus lowering labor costs.

Awesome plan. Make America better, by making American workers poorer.
