Krugman: Cutbacks In Public Sector Are What's Hurting The Recovery
Made popular 346 days ago in
“The real story about this economy is that the cutbacks at the public sector are what’s hurting the recovery," Paul Krugman said in his defense of President Obama declaring the private second to be just fine.
“By this point in Obama’s presidency, if we had normal public sector job growth, we would have around 800,000 more people. Firefighters, schoolteachers, police officers. Instead, we’ve got 600,000 fewer. So right there, it’s like 1.4 million jobs that we should have had in the public sector. And, of course, those would have translated into more private sector jobs too. So that’s what he was trying to get at, and of course, he screwed up the line," Krugman said on CBS's "This Morning."

The real question is; in times of this sort should we be hiring or firing Firefighters, schoolteachers, police officers, and cutting back on infrastructure spending?
That's really what you will be voting on this november and the contrast is clear.

@Free Firefighter/ Police Yes. Fire 99% of teachers that aren't doing their jobs and that have a political (dumb craps) agenda to brainwash our children with lies and deception. Fire all the leftests morons in Washington that put us in this situation in the first place and that continues to keep us here.
Yes, I WILL be voting for the American, not marxist, come November.
