In a letter to MoveOn.org members

8/8/2012: “Congressional Republicans sabotaged our economic recovery by crashing the debt ceiling and blocking every jobs measure put forward by the president. Republican governors drastically cut jobs, offsetting private sector job gains. Now Romney is blaming Obama for high unemployment.”  –Justin, Emily, Victoria, Robin, and the rest of the team

My response: The truth is that in those states that elected a Republican governor in the last election cycle, 14 have lowered unemployment significantly, and all below the federal unemployment rate.  It may be true that these governors drastically cut jobs on the state level, but it seems that if the unemployment levels dropped, these reductions in state spending have been offset by increased employment in the private sector.  And this is a bad thing how?
