A question or two for Meg Whitman

Meg Whitman is the Republican candidate for Governor of California. In her latest ad, running on TV, she says this:
"The human cost of putting 2,000,000 people out of work is devastating. I think politicians often forget that because they don't see it every day. I see it every day."
It's a simple question, really: "Where exactly, Meg, do you see this "every day"?" When is the last time you had actual personal contact with an unemployed person? Are there members of your family who are unemployed? You yourself (actually, I think she is, technically)? And how exactly does your plan to lay off 40,000 state workers when you take office square with your sentiment? Is there no "human cost" to laying off state workers, only workers in the private sector?
