In stump speeches, Romney says he wants to cut the federal workforce to “stop the unfairness of government workers getting better pay and benefits than the taxpayers they serve.” Ryan, a House Republican picked this weekend to be Romney’s running mate, has a detailed budget plan that targets federal workers.
I think what Ryan and Romney meant is that the U.S. standard of living is too high, and we all need to be taken down a notch or two.
Except those in the higher tax brackets who, if given the incentive of lower taxes, will pull this country back (minus the middle class) from a country with a too high standard of living, to where it was before all those federal employees started making all that money, pre-1776.
I mean, by their logic, right now it is only the federal employees making all that money, who are keeping the standard of living for the middle class, middle class.
Without the wages of federal employees, we are looking at a country similar to Mexico, where the poor pay taxes to the government, and the rich buy the government for their own use.
I am thinking that Mitt should go back to where his family started out, Mexico, instead of bringing Mexico’s standard of living to the U.S..
