The govt creates jobs at the expense of the tax payer. The tax pa ying citizen pays for these jobs and these people that have thse jobs pay no taxes. The private sector doenst cost anything to the govt or the tax payer and taxes go to the govt

government jobs is something short term or long term-if we taxpayers will pay for it, private sector tends to be long term and we tax payers dont pay for it. lord obama rather we taxpayers pay for it so we go bancrupt, republicans wnat businesses to pay, not taxpayers

The government can only create jobs with private sector money that they confiscate under the guise of taxes. The jobs that they do "create" are always expensive, and badly managed. Also they are temporary.

What's more, government service jobs are paid for by the taxpayer, so again, we get screwed. What's more, the government NEVER does anything efficiently so there is... More

Government jobs are not productive, rather a drain on society by those involved in, generally, worthless activities. There are activities the government causes to create demand, for example going to war, building highways, improving waterways, etc which create jobs.
