America Is Crumbling: Hire Us to Fix It
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is being lauded as a job creator in the midst of recession. But as Paul Krugman pointed out this week, those jobs were a result of population growth, not Perry's anti-government economic philosophy. The same governor who told Glenn Beck that the government doesn't create jobs was in charge while 47% of all government jobs were added in his state. And the bulk of these jobs were in public education and healthcare - two sectors that will be forced to lay off tens of thousands due to Perry's draconian budget.
