So Michael Steele is running around telling everyone government never created a job. Sure Michael and Ronald Reagan is alive and kicking. Regardless Mr. Steele is out of the gate lying as all good members of the Grand Old Preventative party are prone to do.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates with the enactment of H.R. 1 (the stimulus package)

…the number of jobs would be between 0.8 million and 2.1 million higher at the end of this year, 1.2 million to 3.6 million higher at the end of next year, and 0.7 million to 2.1 million higher at the end of 2011 than under current law.

Think Progress has Mr. Steele prattling on about such rubbish in a clip from CNN (his response isn’t included in the interview, but I’d be willing to bet Wolfie didn’t challenge him on it). So now wingnuts and their mouthpieces will be peddling this crap to the naive and ignorant who will then parrot this garbage all over the place.

Fortunately there are facts, but republicans never let those get in the way now do they.
