That's not true, just work for "government" at any level. You'll be fine! Vote as your told, support the local politico and you'll never notice a recession.

You could always wear a shirt or hat with a hammer and sickle on it and get a federal job.

What recession, our two SSI checks, plus two teacher retirement checks has not effected our life style in the least. My grandkids will have to pay the bill, but if oBOMBo, Pelosi and Reed don't give a $hit, why should I, as a little guy taxpayer, give a rat's a$$

Franklin & Marshall College's research is flawed! How many state and federal employees within the state have been (a) laid off (b) terminated, or had pay reduced? How many teachers who are union members been let go? So, how could reality be "one in two"?
How large was the survey sample? What are the demographics of the sample? The so-called "research" sounds fishy. Here's a fact that does not require any research by Franklin & Marshall College, or anyone else, to confirm: rising inflation will affect everyone.

Bush and Cheney and Daschle didn't give a $hit for their 8 years, and neither did you. So why whine now? Oh, I know, there is a black president now.

Judging by the number of unborn babies aborted in this country, how many within the next generation do you think they'll be to pay off the national debt!?
