Democrats can never win with the truth. They will never say that government is good, the bigger the better. They will never tell people that if they become more dependent on the government, they will always be mediocre at best.
Take Harry Reid's latest "jobs math." He had the audacity (that word again) to say the following:
It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it's the public-sector jobs where we've lost huge numbers, and that's what this legislation is all about.Unfortunately, the numbers do not back this up. Since 2008 when the recession began, federal government added over 250,000 new jobs, a 13.5% increase in two years. Despite the stimulus funds designed to help state and local governments, government employment deceased since 2008.
On the private side, there are still over 2.5 million fewer jobs in America than in 2008. Hence the 9.1 percent unemployment rate. Harry has his facts reversed.
So what are Reid's goals with his (and Obama's) jobs agenda?
1) Put money into state and local governments, namely schools, made up of dues-paying union members who only fund Democrat candidates at the local level -- Senate and House candidates.
2) Claim that only the Democrats care about jobs because Republicans will not pass a bogus jobs bill.
Lies coupled with spin equals Democrat tactics. If it works, why should they care they win? All they want is the power. The mean of achieving it is a footnote at best, than know one really cares about.
