Jobs -- or debt -- 'created'?

Jobs -- or debt -- 'created'?

February 7th, 2011 in Opinion Free Press

Remember how the $862 billion federal "stimulus" was first supposed to "create" lots of private-sector jobs? Its Democrat backers later said it would "create or save" jobs. Today we know that it mainly propped up government jobs, added to our debt and "created" little economic growth.

Well, members of Congress now are pushing an $8 billion aviation bill that they say will "support" lots of jobs. (They're carefully avoiding the word "create," The Associated Press reported.)

We suspect this bill will "support" more debt but "create" few jobs.
