Republicans and Their Never-Ending Efforts To Find Jobs for Our Citizens

You have to give the Republican Party credit – they are working hard to create jobs for those who are out of work.

In Tennessee, for example, the right to trial by jury was limited for every Tennessean so that somebody somewhere could get a job.

The right that citizens had to sue those who design and build dangerous roads and bridges was severely limited with the promise of more jobs.

We give welfare (in the form of tax breaks) to corporations so that people get low-paying jobs with no benefits.

But a Republican in Florida is using the "legislate for more jobs" argument in a way that our Tennessee Republicans will marvel at.  Current Florida law outlaws dwarf-tossing."  (Wikipedia; "Dwarf-tossing is a bar attraction in which dwarfs wearing special padded clothing or Velcro costumes are thrown onto mattresses or at Velcro-coated walls. Participants compete to throw the dwarf the farthest.")   State Rep. Ritch Workman, a Republican from Melbourne, is seeking to repeal the law.  Why?  Dwarfs need the work.

Here is what Rep. Workman told that Palm Beach Post:

"I’m on a quest to seek and destroy unnecessary burdens on the freedom and liberties of people," Workman said. "This is an example of Big Brother government."

All that it does is prevent some dwarfs from getting jobs they would be happy to get," Workman said. "In this economy, or any economy, why would we want to prevent people from getting gainful employment?"

Who says that Republicans don’t care about the little guy?
