This is in response to Justin Conley editorial of March 10, 2011, entitled “Voter suppression and no jobs.”
Oh Justin. To quote Ronald Reagan, “there you go again.” According to your editorial, Republicans are out to disenfranchise, “students, minorities, the disabled, and those in poverty,” and waste taxpayer money spending $20 million to do it instead of using that money to create jobs. The only job any government creates, whether led by Democrats or Republicans, are more government jobs which must be paid for by taxes. Government does have the ability to encourage job creation in the private sector through its fiscal policy, but it does not “create” jobs. And I just know you did not mean to suggest this state needs even more state employees, did you?
