Honest question -- if someone lost their job, wouldn't someone else get it?
Or if the job was just eliminated, wouldn't that imply it was never necessary to begin with?
Ultimately politicians are at the mercy of the voting public. If they make "selfish" decisions, they should be voted out. But just because they're making unpopular decisions doesn't necessarily mean they're the wrong ones . . .
