The best way the economy to grow is for Gov't to spend far, far less and let the people keep their own money.

In reality, there is no government deficit, since the bills are paid, the only question is HOW does the Gov't pay for it.

All gov't spending is a drain on the economy,not a plus.

“All gov’t spending is a drain on the economy,not a plus.”

Only private sector workers actually raises money for the govt. Govt workers do not. Here is the analogy I use to explain this to my lib aquaintances. Your family needs more income so you hire your son to mow your lawn for $500 dollars a week. In return he will give you $200 a week as “a family tax”. Are you making any money on this deal? Obviously not. Reich would say that this has created a job and is increasing the family’s income by $200 a week. In reality, to get that $200 a week you have to pay $500/week. This is essentially what happens with all govt employees. You cant tax them enough to make a profit.
