I live in a red state. They are not happy about job losses. Idaho is poor enough.

This is the part where I blame Obama. Of course, it's been barely 100 days, so I can still do tha


We get to do that for the next four years and then some.

Like the last guy that blame the previous guy for eight years.

Turn about is FAIR PLAY!

Everything is O's Fault.

I couldn't get tires for my peoples vehicles who were boots on the ground, yet these rich Bravos were sending their kids to privates schools in armored limousine convoys.

BOHICA !!!

Foxtrot that Alpha Rexy, then do it again !

Gentlemen, you have no Foxtrotting idea how long this has been needed.
And the fact that a Texas cowboy is doing it, makes it just that much sweeter.

Oh P. S. Wantamaker 6, KMA !!!

So we are having to make cuts to afford our military? While the rich Bravos get the raid on funds? Maybe we can't afford anymore war if we don't want to fully fund them.

Have you ever had any dealings with the bloated DoS ??
Have you ever been on a foreign posting in a third world country for years at a time ?
Have you ever had a direct engagement with known armed insurgents and then proceeded to neutralize said enemy combatants ?

Don't be speaking of things you know nothing about.

The legend of the Casper's continues

I can speak how I want. If we can't afford wars, STOP and come home. Simple. Or raise taxes.

Job losses, wars.

Worst President Ever.

Why should the goverment employ people in unneeded jobs? Thats just another form of welfare.

Even better why do we need the state department to begin with when it's rason d'etre is essentially bribing people to get our way.

Foreign welfare.

2300 jobs is a big cut. Think of all the damage that will be done to those people, and then other workers have to do two jobs.

People just wont be replaced when the retire/leave.

We are already a government in chaos. The congress can't govern and now they want to punish working people and their families. Fire congress.

No is being punished!

People are just not being replaced when they leave.

I'd think it'd be better to cut out the almost $20 million Trump has spent in his first 100 days going on vacation, rather than to take people's jobs away from them.

I agree. Let's show him. You should hire me for $80k a year. I won't do anything, but it's a job, so it's good, right?

Idaho’s Unemployment Rate Declines to 3.5 Percent

That's because the rural residents had to move to Twin Falls and a couple of other large cities for low paying jobs.


"Idaho also had a larger share of hourly workers earning minimum wage in 2012 than ever before. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates 31,000 Idahoans made $7.25 an hour or less in 2012. That’s a 63 percent increase from 2011."

Isn't that a coincidence? That's when we started to see large waves of employers coming into compliance with the ACA Employer mandates ...

So, yes, a lot of people did lose their jobs and have to start picking up two to three part-time jobs because that's how employers adjusted to stay afloat under the new rules.

78,000 Idahoans don't have insurance because Idaho did not take the Medicaid expansion.
