How do you destroy jobs with a "jobs bill" "stimulus package"? First, you frame the creation of new public sector jobs at the expense of the private sector as a legitimate bill to create jobs. This confuses the voting public into thinking that it is a serious "jobs bill". This misleads the public into thinking that you really care about providing jobs. It also is a nice campaign tool to use against your political opponent. After all, it makes for great sound bites to demonize anyone that stands in the way of passing a 'poisonous jobs pill' framed as a "jobs bill".
It helps also to count on the media to repeat the sound bites demonizing your political opponents, without reporting why they need to block the "poisonous jobs pill".
When we campaign using our "poisonous jobs pill" rhetoric, the voting public better not realize that these are only temporary funded job positions to grow the government. These new government job positions will need future funding at the expense of the real job creators in the private sector. When it is already too late, it is ok then for the public to find out that these positions will need to be funded by future "stimulus money" or the local municipalities will be on the hook to fund these new government positions.
Of course if those local municipalities could have afforded those positions in the first place, they would be hiring for those positions already. When the federal government bypasses the local government's budget and planning and creates more expense for them in future budgets, the local governments may feel they have no other choice but to raise taxes. Of course when you raise taxes, you force businesses that can afford it, to pack up and move to a more business friendly environment.
When we grow the government, we are growing the public sector. The public sector is not self-funded. It has to take money out of the job creating private sector to pay for the public sector bureaucracy. The bigger government gets, the more money it costs to fund it. Once we create a government agency, it is hard to get rid of. Our government agencies have a tendency to grow and grow and grow. There is a point when the government is soooo big, so massive, so cumbersome and so expensive that the private sector crumbles from the massive costs of funding such a monstrosity. Can you just imagine all the private sector jobs lost from another "jobs bill" to expand the government? Mission accomplished.
Now we just sit back and demonize those greedy companies that are packing up and going overseas? Let's just act like our policies had nothing to do with it. We know the media will not question us about the nature of our "poisonous jobs pill" or our role in any of this.
