Slow But Steady, No Thanks to the GOP

Private Sector Job Losses/Gains

Conservatives don’t want to admit it (and frequently lie about it with abandon) but the truth of the matter is that the public sector is hemorrhaging jobs while private sector hiring is picking up steam.  Keep in mind that GOP policies that have hurt the public sector have kept the economic recovery from being even bigger. Remember, when asked about federal job losses due to his policy, John Boehner, Speaker of the House, had this to say:

“And if some of those jobs are lost in this, so be it.”

Given their priorities since taking control of the house, you might be forgiven for thinking the GOP simply doesn’t care about jobs.
