Cut govt. BS, get back exported jobs

The Lewiston Tribune of Nov. 9: “U.S. firms boost hiring despite the federal shutdown.” Reading the article got me thinking: 16 days of shutdown = 204,000 jobs. That is 12,750 jobs per shutdown day! Maybe the headline should have been: “Federal shutdown boosts U.S. hiring.” It is so simple. Shutdown for a month = 382,000 new jobs. A year = 4.6 million. Figures don’t lie!

Seriously, though, the reasoning may be wrong but the end result is not. Cut the government BS and we can get back the jobs we have exported. Less government does equal more jobs.
