U.S. Citizen: Any politician who tells you the government can create jobs and it will be sustainable is lying to us. Government has no real source of income other than federal income taxes, fees and fines. All salaries being paid comes from the taxes collected from taxpayers. Only businesses can create jobs not dependent on taxpayer dollars. This is the very reason why government must downsize. Nearly half of the populations pays no income taxes what so ever, after deduction quit a few get more back than what they paid in. How long do you think this can last while this country continues to take on more debt.
