    The only jobs created by the government is when they start up a new agency and waste more tax $$.
    Jobs are created by the private sector, specifically small businesses. Get the hell out of the way, Ragan, and let them do it.

      The private sector needs to stop begging for government money. They hire lobbyists to increase funds going to business then cry socialism when government tells them what to do. Business just like the welfare lifers don’t want to do it on their own when the government will do it for them.
