Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans agrily charge that government does not create jobs. Only the private sector creates jobs. This is ridiculous. Governments provide real and valuable services to people who pay for them with real and valuable dollars. And real and valuable people do the work... until those governments get starved, the workers all get laid off, and the services stop being provided.

"Never again will any president from either party be allowed to raise the debt ceiling without being held accountable for it by the American people"
The U.S. Senate today, with a bipartisan 74-26 vote, passed the $2 trillion-plus debt extension and sent it to the White House, where President Obama signed it, with a promise to cut about $1 trillion in future spending and set up a process to cut more than $1 trillion more. Out in the White...
