Basically, the problem with Hudak's plan

Eliminating 100000 public sector jobs.

Yeah, fine, everyone likes using the civil service as a political punching bag. So Tim opens his campaign with the 100K kill plan before jumping into the 1M job plan. 

The million job plan has already been well debunked by economists so let's think about the job cuts. 

At first, one may be forgiven for thinking about a massive cut to public service as a great savings. Maybe it is but thing about it like this;

100000 fewer tax payers
100000 fewer consumers
100000 more people competing for jobs you're chasing

good plan, huh?
