Government canâ€™t create jobs. Government never created a single job.
Never did, never can, never will.
Isnâ€™t it odd, though, that you donâ€™t hear that mantra when the subject is, say, building a publicly financed football stadium, or a highly subsidized nuclear power plant or auto plant. All of a sudden weâ€™re swamped with data about the thousands of jobs that would be created if government would just commit taxpayersâ€™ money to the project.
