A Crack in the Armor? Another Conversation with a Leftist Friend

I was talking with my lib friend yesterday (the same one who said Tuesday’s vote would inaugurate fascism in America), when he opined that Boehner had said something incredibly stupid.
“What?” I asked.
“He said something along the lines of ‘the American people want us to lower spending and create more jobs.’”
I replied, “Well, that makes sense to me.”
My friend sneered. “Do you know how many jobs the government creates?”
“Yes, I do,” I answered. “I also know that all government jobs are paid for by taxpayer money. And I know that right now, on average, government workers earn more than private sector workers, and that’s not even including the pensions. That makes it a Ponzi scheme, because there’s eventually not going to be enough money to pay for government workers.”
Silence greeted me.
