Obama didn't promise tens of thousands of new jobs. He actually promised several million. His actions did in effect meet his promise. That said, the cuts initiated by the Congress resulted in the loss or offset of all those gained especially in public service. You see, counter to the Republican talking point that government does not create jobs, our federal, state, city and county governments are probably responsible for hiring more employees then any private company on the planet. Now if you want to start counting all the employment opportunities public policy presents via countracting and service agreements, they probably hire more then anyone in the universe and that's before we even look at those serving in our armed services. I still want to know where the jobs are that Governor Scott promised. Aren't Republicans supposed to be for personal responsilibty? Guess only Democrats can be held accountable for anything in the country.
