The Unemployment Rate, Goverment Jobs (Public Sector Jobs) and Sequestration

From the “bubble of truth,” Ezra Klein counters the GOP talking point that government jobs don’t help recovery from a recession.

“If we hadn’t lost public sector jobs, unemployment would be at 7.8 percent.” And in fact there’s no public-sector job loss like this in previous recessions

Reality time now, if we had not lost the public sector jobs (from Jan 2009 – Jan 2013) the unemployment would NOT be 7.9% now (because it is that) it would be less than 6.5%!!!!! Notice Reagan ADDED a lot of public sector jobs and he is GRAND PUBA MYTHIICAL UNICORN FOR ALL THINGS REPUBLICAN AND CONSERVATIVE 😉

BTW…strange irony here….Republicans want GOVT CUTS for a long time but when the GOVT CUTS roll down hill to their local state levels that impact their contstiuents then all of sudden they dont want those GOVT CUTS.
