Back in the day there was a popular rap song with the main refrain comprised of you gotta have a J.O.B. if you wanna be with me.
Well with unemployment at a real rate of 16% and manufactuing jobs still a mirage (100.00 says Fiskars never makes one car here because there’s little market for such an expensive car) the Consultant in Chief and the Head Cook have decided that the ban on state hiring can be lifted.
The reason for this isn’t that we NEED more state workers, the reason is the Democrat’s need to do something to create the much vaunted J.O.B.
After all state services haven’t been impacted. Nothing has been shut down, no one turned away and the sun continues to come up each and every day.
Yet with AFSCME and DSEA running the state and driving all public policy – could Dennis Williams have kowtowed to Mike Begatto any faster yesterday by rushing to return that measly 2.5 % to state workers – it shows us that real job creation has been given up on.
The state that started a nation is heading for a fiscal collapse so bad that the Consultant in Chief will run for the United States Senate when Sen Carper hangs it up in 2012 and as he files he’ll be whistling past the fiscal graveyard and gladly tell Matt Denn go for it, I left you in great shape.
So this is how this administration led by a “businessman” creates the J.O.B.; by expanding the state payroll while knowing the fiscal time bomb is getting closer and closer to going off.
What a disgrace.
