New GOP Plan to Help Unemployed: Fire 200,000

The GOP rejected an extension of the payroll tax cut tonight.  OK, no surprise and there are reasonable arguments for and against the measure.  But again the Republican “logic” behind their plan to pay for unemployment benefits is mind-boggling.  Mr. McConnell and his nutcase cohort propose firing 200,000 federal employees as a way to save money.  Does he think people don’t see this as just a measure to help ensure unemployment stays high through the 2012 campaign season.
