Republicans Kill 1,288 Michigan Jobs as Unemployment Edges Up

This from Trumka's email today:

Last weekend, House Republican leaders proved just how far they are willing to go to achieve their ideological goals.

At 12:01 a.m. Saturday morning, they shut down the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). As if bringing America to the brink of default hasn’t done enough damage already. Are they out of their minds?

Because of the extreme ideological agenda of House Republicans and their political game-playing, 4,000 workers were furloughed over the weekend and more than 90,000 jobs across the country are on the line—including 1,288 in MI.

I don't understand it. It's a purposeful assault on jobs. The Republicans in Congress are killing jobs On Purpose. Michigan's U6 unemployment stood at 19.8% last month, with unemployment climbing again. Looks like it's about to go a lot higher, and on purpose.
