Governments Can Hire

Republicans argue that the government can’t create jobs. This is absurd. Anyone who hires someone else to do some work creates a job. Governments create jobs every day: clerks, police, firefighters, road construction workers, bridge builders, school builders, school teachers, health care workers, air traffic controllers, meat and food inspectors, safety inspectors, building inspectors, elevator inspectors, the patent office, sewer maintenance people, waterworks people, people who manage public parks, the military, search and rescue… The irony is the Republicans simultaneously complain that governments hire too many people! What hypocrites!
