Dems keep claiming that government spending creates net new jobs

When will Democrats learn that government spending doesn't create net new jobs?  From The Hill newspaper:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday accused House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) of deliberately trying to sabotage the U.S. economy.  Republicans immediately fired back, with Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) spokesman using an eight-letter word to rebuke the Senate leader.  “That’s bull----," said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel. "House Republicans are united in our desire to get a sensible, reform-minded transportation bill done, including job-creating energy initiatives like Keystone.”  Reid has grown frustrated by House Republicans’ reluctance to pass a multiyear transportation authorization bill, which Democrats say would create hundreds of thousands of jobs. . . .
