No kidding, it doesn’t, as we can see from this story here (click) where Utah officials are expressing no concern at all about Utah losing any jobs if a transportation spending bill gets held up in Washington.
No sir, federal spending never creates jobs, that is the Tea Party/GOP mantra. All fed spending does is create more nanny state attitudes, dependence, and a lack of initiative and free will on the part of the recipients.
So what if 9,000 jobs disappear? They weren’t really jobs! God only knows what they were, but it doesn’t matter because they soon will be gone, unless Washington acts, and we all know how well that will work out.
In other news, Gov. Rick Perry is giving a speech any second now (click) turning down any and all federal aid or funds to help fight wildfires that have already destroyed 1000 homes in Texas, the state he has intimated should be independent of the US because of all that horrible federal spending.
Hey Gov, how’s that independence working out for you?
