Politicians & jobs

We hear a lot of overblown rhetoric this time of year about jobs.

Politicians do not create jobs in the private sector. They can influence the creation of jobs by having a favorable tax climate, good roads and schools, etc. Only if government purchases from the private sector does it create or preserve jobs.

And if a politician promises not to raise your taxes, ask him how he is going to pay for police, fire, roads and schools. These are things we all use and they should be paid for by everyone's taxes.
