Reid to Spend on Gummint Jobs. Doh.

Seems that the Senate (D) party wants to dump $35Bn into Gummint jobs.

Ol' Harry makes the claim that Gummint jobs done been hard-hit in the Great Recession.

Well, not really.

According to an analysis by the Republican staff of the Senate Finance Committee using Bureau of Labor Statistics data, since the beginning of the recent recession (Dec. 2007), there have been 6,257,000 private sector job losses (a 5.41% decline) and 392,000 total government (federal + state + local) job losses (a 1.75% decline).

Harry has a constituency:  Jabba the Hutt.
