Government Doesn't Create Jobs - Except When It Does.

How many times have we had to listen to Scott Walker and his apologists utter their bumper sticker mantra that "Government doesn't create jobs?"

This might come as a surprise to some people, but Walker was lying:
Grant funding awarded to the city of Fond du Lac will support a project that adds 70 new jobs at McNeilus Steel.

Gov. Scott Walker announced the $600,000 Transportation Economic Assistance grant on Thursday. It represents the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s contribution toward rail improvements to serve McNeilus Steel. The city will not provide funds, but will act as sponsor of the grant.

“It’s exciting news to have things finalized and moving forward and we’re excited about the support from the state,” McNeilus General Manager Greg Head said.
To make it even more ironic is that it is taking to bodies of government to create these jobs.

But gee, does this mean Walker might be lying about other things too? Like the supposed surplus? Or that he's not John Doe?
