    Wrong again... The government has contracts with dozens of private companies that do their own hiring. Ever heard of Martin or Boeing

    The level of wrong coming from you is pretty astounding.

    By your argument, government action in providing loans to nuclear power means that all of the jobs in nuclear power plants built by public financing don't actually exist. I guess you should tell Utahbill he actually doesn't have a job because government action created his private sector job.

    Without government action, there would be no private sector nuclear. Period.

    Solar subsidies are creating huge number of jobs. That's government action. The entire defense industry is centered around government action.

    You are so wrong on this point it's not even funny.

    Totally not surprising.

    Tell me, the US buys 100 F-15s from Boeing. Boeing hires 45 people to build the plans. Have only 45 jobs been created? Let's see if you can answer this intelligently.

    Re: More Democrats break with Obama on tax cuts

    wendy greuel's dept of transportation TARGETED a total of 26 jobs to be created or saved at a cost of 40.8 million stimu... err, recovery act dollars

    1.57M per position

    sadly, the city of angels flew far short of this lofty goal

    only 9 workers were brought in for the 40.8 price tag, a BOTTOM LINE of 4.56M per worker

    ah, but if you include the hotdog vendor who's making a killing, hawking 9 frankfurters a day outside the plant...

    LOL!

    why can't obtuse obama utter the dread s-word?

    as for doug elmendorf, he's the fellow who recently reckoned that SIX YEARS of w-stands-for-what's-his-name's war in iraq came in more than twenty percent CHEAPER than 2 failed years of oblivious, obtuse obama's s-word economics

    Sounds like an argument for stimulating the economy by increaing defense procurement.

    Typical media/Rep cherry picking, and you apparently fell for it.

    Facts are the government has only two ways to hire, directly and indirectly through government contracts to independent low bid companies.

    Now show me where the mythical 2 million per pop can be realistically applied.

    typical cherry picking by the LA CITY CONTROLLER

    she's the one doing all the talking (except for you)

    apparently the city of angels fell for it

    why can't obama pronounce the s-word?
