    Government does not create jobs, it only takes them from the private sector.

    To say government creates jobs is akin to robbing a grocery store of the till, giving that money to a homeless guy, and when that guy goes into the same store you robbed to buy beer, calling that 'stimulus'.

    Stated differently, any money used to "create" jobs must first be taken out of the economy, generally from the country's most productive citizens, those most likely to start businesses and hire people. You can't take money from real job creators, run it through corrupt and inefficient government bureaucracies, and call it 'job creation' when the government eventually gets around to hiring someone. That's a net loss of jobs.

    SO no jobs were created by the government funding research for the moon project? Nothing became of the R&D to develop the microprocessor?
    No jobs were created by building the interstate system?
    No jobs were created by the internet, which came about through government funding?


    Does it HURT you to be so ignorant? I imagine it does.

    Not without first removing the ability to create jobs in the private sector. The money for government funded job creation doesn't grow on trees, it's taken from job creators.

    Didn't expect you to resist an ad hominem attack. Good luck with that.
