Oh Noes! The State Might Have to Cut Jobs

"Gov. Ed Rendell said state government will lay off close to 800 employees because of spending cuts that are likely." states the Associated Press.

Rendell says this as though it's a bad thing. He's been zipping around the state, trying to convince everyone that they should give him (good-for-nothing piece of crap) more of their hard-earned money. During a recession. Good luck with that, chief.

But if the state will have to fire employees, does that mean the size of the state government is shrinking? At least by one measure, and to me that's a good thing.

This argument from statists always amuses me: "You'll be causing unemployment if you don't pony up!"

Don't they understand that to many of us, a shrinking of the government's payroll is a good thing?
