As disturbing as Mitt Romney's plan is, it's not even based in reality.

    Did you know that the unemployment figures for Washington D.C. were (and probably still are) the lowest in the nation? And that the average salary for clerks mind you, not just attorneys, is almost double what a similar private sector position pays?
    Leeches in Washington...big surprise!

    Laughing Man
    Since The Romney Camp And The RNC Aren't Willing To Follow The Rule Of The Election Process. Lets Be The Bigger Man And Women And Follow The Rules And Laws. Like RNC Unit Rule 38

    Which States... No delegate or Alternate delegate shall be bound by any attempt of any state or any congressional district to impose the unit rule.

    What is the unite Rule? Well that rule requires that All delegates from one state or congressional district are required or bound to vote as a unit.

    Which Means. Those delegates who are Ron Paul supporters and who are suppose to vote for Romney in the first round of votes... "Do not"And I repeat "Do not" have to vote for Romney the rule clearly states that a delegate can vote from their own "Conscience". You Feel Ron Paul Is The Right Man Vote Ron Paul.

    And since most of Romney's delegates are Ron Paul supporters you know that that means. You Can Vote For Ron Paul In Tampa And Aren't Required At All To Vote For Romney.

    Romney's Tyrant Camp Is Trying To Threaten Delegates Into Sign An Affidavit Which States They Will Vote For Romney On The First Round Of Vote Will Guess What The Law Under This Says You Don't Have To.

    Second Note With is The Voting Rights (B) Law Which States...

    Intimidation, threats, or coercion
    No person, whether acting under color of law or otherwise, shall intimidate, threaten, coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any other person for the purpose of interfering with the right of such other person to vote or to vote as he may choose, or of causing such other person to vote for, or not to vote for, any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, presidential elector, Member of the Senate, or Member of the House of Representatives, Delegates or Commissioners from the Territories or possessions, at any general, special, or primary election held solely or in part for the purpose of selecting or electing any such candidate.

    Not even the GOP can get around federal law. It is all in how the law is written. “No person, whether acting under the color of law…” that would seem to be relating to state law. “threaten, or coerce any other person for the purpose of interfering with the right of such other person to vote or to vote as he may choose…” That would be relating to a person’s right to vote their conscience. “or of causing such other person to vote for, or not to vote for, any candidate for the office of President…” That would be relating to binding delegates. “at any general, special, or primary election held solely or in part for the purpose of selecting or electing any such candidate. …” That would be relating to the primaries, the state conventions and the national convention.

    Facts are facts. Law is law. The way this was written, it includes every citizen, it does not matter what position they hold, whether it be the President himself, Senators, Congressmen, Judges, Attorney’s, Doctors, police, delegates or regular citizens. If there are shenanigans by the GOP like in several state conventions, this will go to court and will hurt the general election. We are playing by the rules and federal law, The establishment are breaking their own rules. (FACT).

    that is also on top of all the corporations he liquidates for profit, stocks he manipulates and other business dealing he does after being president.

    Yeah we need the people in power to take a major pay cut, and reform how/what/when they get paid not fire the people doing all the work.

    Reading the comments on this thread I realize what my Southern Democrat family has said for years is accurate. Redneck-publicans will vote to end government jobs and not think about the people they know that may be the ones getting fired.

    There are easily 145,000 employees in the EPA, the Dept. of Energy, or the Dept. of Education that _SHOULD_ be fired. More likely, twice that many.

    Go, Mitt, Go! Exactly so. I'm not wild about him as a candidate, but what he says about this is exactly what should happen. The left LOVES big government - it's how they benefit. The right dislikes big government - it's how they are robbed of freedom and money.

    Who, among government employees, is a net tax PAYER? I count such a person as a net tax CONSUMER. I count the salary and benefits as a thing that taxpayers have to pay for.

    Problem is, Temlakos, is that you understand the difference in a government worker and a private business worker. I don't believe anyone on the left has figured it out yet. It takes TAX DOLLARS TO PAY A GOVERNMENT WORKER, AND ANY TAXES HE PAYS BEGAN AS TAX DOLLARS. Such is not the case with private workers.

    So? Drop in the bucket, compared to those of us who have been scraped off the unemployment rolls (99'ers) by Obama.
    Anyway, what's the difference 'tween an Obama and a Romney?

    This is a great start.....he actually needs to fire more along the lines of 1.45 Million government workers, but this will be a step in the right direction. There are many useless petty tyrants sucking the life out of our economy that must be fired before we can hope for economic recovery. I'm glad he knows this. +1 Mitt

    The Public Sector has become bloated and over-sized - creating SEIU and other public-sector union jobs willy-nilly during the $pendulus Program - so this is primarily a rollback to close the gap between what is being spent versus what is needed or justified.
