*Dept. of Labor latest numbers of jobs added to our economy.  

*Sequestration: Republican advocates, and cheerleaders high five the dumb, brutal, and livelihood destabilizing cuts.  Reports beginning to come in (with deeper impact to come in months ahead) of Americans living a new cruel low from Republican cheer-leaded Sequestration cuts.  One (not discussed) caveat: Congressional pay… NOT CUT one dime.

*** SEQUESTRATION: 

As Republicans high five their strategy of sequestration, Americans are living a new low from sequestration.  At todays 5 week marker, some impact of the historically dumb cuts are already making themselves known, and felt.  

Clearly, as more time passes the deeper, wider, stronger, and brutal the cuts will prove themselves to be.  Meanwhile the wealth class (which includes most legislators) are enjoying a financial and economic cocoon of protection and devastation insulation.  And what is most tantalizingly transparent in all of this, Congress did NOT put their pay on the sequestration brutally blunt chopping block.

House Speaker, John Boehner (R-OH): 

“We forged a new tactical plan that focused on using our limited leverage to maximum effect in support of the reforms needed to support economic growth and job creation for all Americans.”

Boehner:

“Republicans may be the minority party in Washington — but because we forged a plan together and have stuck to it, our actions as a team over the past couple of months have made a difference for all Americans.”

*Sequestration: MUST WATCH.  Thank you MSNBC, NOW w/ Alex Wagner, and PoliticalArticles .

On top of sequestration, and the many other tentacles of American economic destruction by Republicans, protecting Americas social safety net has proven to be seriously challenging.

“Robert Reich on Chained CPI (the proposal to cut Social Security benefits)”

 Apr 3, 2013

“The Chained CPI, deceptively portrayed as a reasonable cost of living adjustment, is a cut to Social Security that would hurt seniors.

Watch Robert Reich explain why Chained CPI is so stingy in this video, and then sign his SignOn.org petition to President Obama athttp://www.signon.org/sign/mr-preside….”
