2. Yes, but what clinched THAT deal was the report showing NM with negative job growth...

...for the past two years.

She campaigned on creating jobs, then when she was elected she promptly fired 5,000 state employees.

Being from Texas, she didn't actually grasp what a poor state NM is, and how much of the state's employment base is in the public sector. Then the lege successfully blocked a number of her efforts to turn the state over to her pals in the TX Oiligarchy and create shitty jobs that produce vast profits for them under unsafe working conditions with crappy pay.

And her attempts to play to the Teeper base by enacting a lot of anti-brown-people "ID" and "Drivers License" requirements blew up in her face in a state where just about everyone's related to or knows an immigrant, and a huge percent of the population is <gasp> brown.

What's a poor Goob to do?

gleefully,
Bright
