Does Obama Need To Take A Lesson From Cuba?

Cuba announced today that it will lay off at least 500,000 government jobs within the next six months, allowing for more private sector job creation. The government currently controls more than 90% of the economy and runs everything from ice cream parlors to scientific laboratories.
The drastic and unprecedented economic changes have many Cubans worried that jobs they had long taken for granted under the Communist government will no longer be guaranteed.
Others are hopeful that they will have more freedom to set prices and earn more than the average state wage of $20 a month.
"Our state cannot and should not continue maintaining companies, productive entities and services with inflated payrolls and losses that damage our economy and result counterproductive, create bad habits and distort workers' conduct."
So as Cuba is discovering that Communism doesn't work, Obama is pushing it on America. Does Obama need to take a lesson from Castro? Has it really come to this?
