Yep it is just the loss of twinkies. That is all that conservatives are worried about. How about the Loss of real estate taxes, income taxes for all of those that used to be employed, add to that Unemployment for the maximum time frame , food stamps, perhaps loss of homes and the ramifications of that.
All the money that was lost as buying power inside their communities could cause a ripple effect with small business owners that they buy food, supplies from, restaurants and skilled folks like plumbers, electricians.
Add to that those folks that carried away waste, repaired factory facilities.
It is more than just 18,000+ jobs.. It is said a dollar earned in community goes around 7 times in that area.
Typical of the socialist liberal/progressives, when they have nothing intelligent to counter with it is name calling and cartoons.
