The benefits of government jobs
One of the many things Republicans don’t realize is just how many jobs are created by government programs.
Conservatives are always saying that money taken in taxes is removed from the private sector, but it is not. Unlike some of the 1 percent wealthiest, state and federal governments don’t take tax revenue and hide it in Switzerland or some Caribbean island. They use tax money to pay people (either for work or in the form of benefits) and to buy things.
