People don’t vote against their own interests. At least, that’s the theory. So, when their own interests involve keeping their government job, they’ll vote Democrat. They want a politician who is interested in expanding the government, i.e. their paychecks.
That’s why this chart worries me:
Lavishly paid government workers means less money going to the private sector actually producing something. These people won’t want to lose their benefits and lifestyle. If Republicans want smaller government and less money in the government, that will mean cutting bureaucracy. That will mean cutting government workers.
People don’t vote against their own self interest.
Only 85,000 private sector jobs lost last month! During the Christmas rush. When companies add staff.
Only. Happy days must be here again.
