Are people that say the Goverment can't create jobs just plain uneducated and unaware of the facts?
I hear people mostly Republicans telling us that the Government does not create jobs. Is this due to lack of education or are they not aware of the facts or are they not telling the truth. The Government of the United States is the biggest "Boss" or provider of jobs in the country. Not only that but most are well paying and with the best benefits. So when someone says that the Government does not or cannot make jobs then you have to ask are they aware of these facts but choose to ignore them? Sorry that most of you do not understand question. I am neither in favor of or against, it is just a fact that it is the biggest employer and those who say that it cannot create jobs are factually mistaken or lying.

Where does the money for all of these "well paying" government jobs come from? Might you be choosing to ignoring a fact? Could it have something to do with all the taxes which people with "real" jobs pay?

Yes but where does the money come from to pay the government employees? Taxpayers. So part of the money I pay in taxes goes to pay the salaries of government employees. More government employees equals more taxes needed. I have seen government employees in action. My wife is from Mexico and we used to have to go to the... More
