In the second debate, on 2012-10-16, Romney claimed that the government cannot create jobs. In other words, he is saying if he were president there is not a thing he could do. He would just sit on his thumbs and wait for business to start hiring on their own. That the government cannot create jobs is an idiotic claim.

- The government hires people directly.
- The government buys goods and services created by businesses who have to hire people.
- The government can arrange taxes and laws to encourage businesses to hire and avoid outsourcing.
