Great Republican hypocrisies
Everyone should 'take care of themselves...not look for a handout...anyone can succeed in 'Murika by hard work alone' etc...but if you work for one they'll fight tooth and nail to not pay you a living wage... :eyes:

There's gotta be a million of 'em...go crazy. :hi:

1. Another one.
"We need to privatize government agencies to control spending and reduce taxes."

This strategy makes people believe that when a gov't service is privatized, that expenditure falls off the budget. Nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of $$ going to a gov't. agency and employing well-paid workers with benefits like heatlh insurance and pensions, a contracting company gets the $$$. These contractors may or may not pay living wages and benefits, depending on the work being done.

And if there's a cost savings to the taxpayers I'd love to see it.
