Cutting Jobs

The Republican party makes an absurd claim. If the federal government shrinks, cutting spending and firing employees, it will create jobs. There are reasons to cut spending, but creating jobs is obviously not one of them. By definition, every time the government fires someone and does not replace them, there is one less job. Where do the Republican get the chutzpah to try to bamboozle the people into thinking the opposite is true? How dumb can people get that they ever believe these shysters?
