Calling all Teachers: You Won’t Believe This
So, we lay off and/or cut teacher’s salaries because paying them high (yeah, right) salaries hurts the economy but we can’t cut defense because that would hurt the economy? Or some such crazy double talk (and it’s coming from a “Democrat” no less):
The threat of new U.S. defense spending cuts next year is creating uncertainty in the economy, and Congress should take steps this summer to reassure industry it is capable of “avoiding that train wreck,” a top senator on defense issues said on Tuesday.
“Uncertainty which is created by the threat, the prospect, the specter, of sequestration, I believe, is a real threat to this economy,” said Senator Carl Levin, referring to $500 billion in automatic cuts that will kick in unless Congress acts to stop them.
The defense budget is the first thing we should cut (see below) but instead, Levin thinks we should put it in some sort of protected lock box?
THIS IS INSANE!
Carl Levin has got to go.
