Since when did government spending create jobs? Inquiring minds would like to know why there is a double standard when it comes to job creation and government spending.

Springville, UT

"Kings Court", government spending does in fact create jobs. Yours is nothing but a right wing, anti-government talking point that is not only worn out but dead wrong. How many jobs are created when anyone puts out a contract for goods and services? Just like the business sector, the government does it. It has income, like a business, and spends money, just like a business. And when any entity buys goods and services, there is economic activity. Money is flowing through the economy. I am so tired of empty-headed assertions that government spending does not create jobs. It is nonsense. Let's have a dialogue on how money is spent rather than wasting time on your false propaganda claim.
