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.
