Does it makes sense to create government jobs to replace private-sectore jobs and then raise the minimum wage and destroy more jobs and call it "fixing the economy, Obama-style"?Posted by: themightyindividual
...Because that's what's happening.
Yes, that makes perfect sense.
No, that does not make sense.
This is a gross misrepresentation of economics.

The staggering ignorance of monetary policy would be funny if the GOP didn't use said ignorance to propagandize their base.
What makes even more sense is a federal job guarantee, where the federal government agrees to hire anyone willing to work, This also moots the minimum wage - if anyone can work at a job guarantee job, the wage paid is essentially the effective minimum wage.
It makes perfect sense to a communist, Marxist /Tyrant.
One third of all the jobs created during Obama's term in office have been created in a republican controlled state. That state is Texas. And Obama had nothing to do with that. And if Obama has created so many jobs, why are so many people looking for work? And why do we have a record number of people receiving government assistance? Something doesn't add up. Oh, That's right. Many of those new jobs Obama is taking credit for ARE PART TIME JOBS! Not exactly something to brag about. Obamanomics is a joke. Anyone who thinks that turd is doing a good job has a real shaky grasp of reality.
LOL I was just thinking about this the other day. It is ridiculous what believe will believe.
