This is a more important message than the one in the previous post, because it suggests something that you can do right now.

The President’s jobs plan would put teachers, firefighters, police officers, and construction workers back to work right now. And it’s paid for by asking the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more, but Congress refuses to act. Tell Congress we can’t wait: http://www.barackobama.com/JobsNow
Mitt Romney may think it is ok to layoff government workers because that has nothing to do with private sector workers. He pretends to be so naive. With the private sector struggling to provide enough jobs to lower the unemployment rate, the private sector does not need a flood of recently laid off government workers to compete for the few jobs that are available.
Also I keep trying to remind people that the private sector problem is not too much regulation or too much uncertainty in future taxes. The problem is that there are not enough customers. Do you suppose private businesses would refuse to invest if they had customers clamoring for more goods than they can produce? What private business would say, “There is too much regulation, so I won’t invest. Let the competition have these customers that I cannot satisfy.”?
Laid off teachers, police, and firefighters do not make good customers because they are scrambling to live on a much reduced income. When they lose their income, they do not buy more, they buy less.
When you cut income faster than you cut expenses, you do not catch up on controlling your debt. Is that so hard to understand? That is why I think the Republicans are only pretending to not understand, hoping they can convince you of their nonsense.
