“Reid says government jobs must take priority over private-sector jobs”

Jobs that do not create tax revenue. This doddering old fool needs to retire.

"It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine..."

Unbelievable. If the Pubbies don't put this in multiple commercials and blast it from the rooftops, they just have no spine. Oh wait, we knew that.

"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," Reid said on the Senate floor.

Read it, folks. What's the "legislation all about"?

Separately, this scum would clearly sell his mother if he needed money for a cup of coffee.

Nevada should be kicked out of the Union for re-electing this bufoon. Let Guam or Puerto Rico in so we don't have to buy new flags.

Effin’ communist!

My uncle fought in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam against people like Reid. Are the people in Nevada THAT stupid to keep electing someone like this?

The Obama Jobs plan funds government jobs for one year. After that the grant money runs out and the states are left to come up with the money to keep the teachers and first responders employed. This insures that there will be a new crisis within two months of the 2012 elections. It’s all a political game designed to get Obama reelected - not solve the crisis that they insist on prolonging.

Sometimes when I see what Reid says I think ether Scott Ott or John Semmens is writing his speeches. Reid is his own satirist.

Is Reid secretly working for the republicans? This is the sort of sound bite that writes it’s own campaign commercial. Imagine playing this a dozen times a day starting in October 2012.

Reid is delusional. There are more government employees now than when the Great Obama Recession began.

There are millions fewer private sector employees now.

We are in the economic mess we are in because the public sector is given priority over the private sector. It is a easy campaign fund money stream from the unions.

And the reason they have to lay off teachers and police here in CA is because their pensions and healthcare take up too much of their budget and the Unions would rather have layoffs to scare the public instead of giving on the benefits.

Congress needs to worry about government jobs more than private-sector jobs

where does the money come from to pay for the government jobs?

As a side note, why do government jobs pay more than private paying jobs? It used to be that teachers, firemen, policemen and government workers were paid less than the private sector due to their excellent benefit program and stability. Now they’re all driving BMW’s and living the good life. Cut their pay to a lower percent of the overall wage average and charge them a public employee surcharge tax. And why hasn’t anyone suggested that congress take a pay cut?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday said Congress needs to worry about government jobs more than private-sector jobs, and that this is why Senate Democrats are pushing a bill aimed at shoring up teachers and first-responders.

Continuing to spend money we do not have is foolhardy at best and plain stupid, Mr. Reid. Are not teachers and firefighters paid by state, local and municipal governments? Why does the federal government need to step in and spend borrowed money? It is no wonder your state has the highest unemployment in the country!

Perhaps Mr. Reid needs to talk to John McCain to understand that business and growth creates jobs and additional revenues.

Mindless spending without revenue and without a budget does not work. Adding tax burden to those already carrying the load is counter-productive.
