Republican values: Give tax breaks to companies that eliminate jobs
In the last few weeks, layoffs continue at a staggering pace. Ford lays off up to 30,000 workers, Kraft lays off 8000 workers, 200 Electric Boat workers in Connecticut laid off, game maker Electronic Arts lays off 5 percent of work force. While this isn't much concern for Sailer, it is a concern for the rest of us who have to work for a living. Even more annoying is Bush's and the Republicans tax breaks for companies that lay off.
How the nonsensically named American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 allowed Ford to slash jobs while reaping huge job-creation tax benefits.
