It's the equivalent of using a rocket launcher when you should be using a scalpel.

Not sure what you mean. No one is advocating getting rid of jobs. I think you are referring to policies that are designed to cut out the fat. And that does help the economy in that it gets rid of non-productive or non-functional parts of the economy and forces people into productive economic participants.

No, they are getting rid of useless ear mark programs that have been proven ineffective. Ultimately the government would in turn like to create useful programs that will benefit everyone and/or retain the money from putting an end to the ineffective programs.

It is part of the New World Order. According to the WTO the US is supposed to send 12 million jobs to the third world by 2012. Here's a hint - any time you hear the word economy it means the wealth of the millionaires and billionaires.
