If anything, these people are predictable. But since the media is so eager to regurgitate any idiocy coming out of their mouths, why change the playbook?
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus said Monday night that the $85 billion in cuts to federal spending known as the sequester will disproportionately affect blacks and other minorities, in part because they are more likely to work for the government.
“Sequestration will impact everyone, but it will have a particularly harmful effect on communities of color who were hit first and worst by the great recession, and have yet to significantly feel the effects of the recovery,” Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) said Monday.
Lee was joined by Del. Donna Christensen (D-V.I.), who agreed that cuts to public sector jobs would hurt blacks disproportionately.”African Americans are more likely to work in the public sector, where the jobs are going to be cut,” she said. “We already have the highest unemployment, and will be severely hurt by the reduction in unemployment benefits.”
