  •  They will simply have to do what every other (8+ / 0-)

    displaced worker in every other industry has had to do - retrain.     Protecting their jobs is no reason not to cut defense.    We don't need bombs, bullets and jails.  We need high speed rail, bridges, free college educations, and investments into medicine, space, and alternative energy.

    Taxing the rich isn't enough.   Taxing Wall Street, legalizing pot, breaking up the "too big to fail" everythings, single payer, and making industry pay for the roads, rail, fire and police they use to turn a profit needs to be at the top of the list.

    What we need is a Democrat in the White House.
