The Wall Street journal just published an article on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his recent obviously out of touch comment, ""It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it's the public-sector jobs where we've lost huge numbers, and that's what this legislation is all about." Really Mr. Reid, the private sector is doing JUST fine??? I wonder how many laid off Americans feel that way.
But it all boils down to one important aspect: where the focus of the Democrats is—growing government and more spending. The heck with what has given America the power that it has—the private sector. The heck were the real wealth in this country is generated—the private sector. The heck with the millions who are not "fortunate" enough to work for the government and can't find employment in the largest source of employment—the private sector.
It is just hard for me to believe that he could actually say that—but being the mindset of the Democrat Party, I guess it should be no surprise. The connection between the large labor Unions that would benefit from the jobs bill and their contributions to the Democratic Party should also come as no surprise. For all the Liberals who complain about corporate influence in politics, what about the undue influence that Unions hold over the Democratic Party? Is that ok? Is that really any better? I think they both stink and I am fed up with both sides!
Mr. Reid, all I can tell you is that my only solace is that just like you claim the private sector is doing just fine, I am glad to see that based on the polls, the Democratic Party is also doing "just fine!"
