    The private sector is shedding jobs by the thousands every day. But Republicans would rather have people be unemployed by the private sector than employed by the public sector. (Rep. Rodgers insisted that every single job that the economic recovery plan creates be in the private sector.)

    Only the federal government has the resources to stave off the disaster that will surely befall us if we let the free market take us further over the cliff.

    The Republicans keep reiterating Hooverisms.

    Why?

    Because they’re ideologically bankrupt.

    Simple question for you: Where does the government get its money?

    From sales of T-Bonds to China. We've been borrowing from them for years.

    That's where the government is getting some of the money. Where else? More importantly, where will the money come from to repay this debt?

    Well since jobs and wealth are only created in the private sector that would seem to be a pretty good policy.

    And Hoover actually did plenty to try and "fend off" the Great Depression. Roosevelt basically continued his policies.

    Where in the Constitution (remember the Constitution, that document that spells out the powers of our government) does it say the government should employ the unemployed?

    The right hates the government and shouldn't be working in it. Funny thing is, we the people, are the government.

    Exactly as the banks did.
