Any notion that creating government jobs will lead to lower unemployment and a turnaround in the housing market simply ignores the fact that paying for those jobs means increasing taxes, taking money out of the private sector, significant job losses in the private sector and a worsening real estate market.

Government-created jobs always cost more than they produce.
