Socialist America: Nearly half of Americans favor government-guaranteed jobs for everyone

In recent days openly socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. announced he would propose legislation that would guarantee a taxpayer-supported government job to anyone who needed or wanted one.

As reported by The National Sentinel:

Seems Bernie thinks everyone ought to have a government job, and ought to make at least $15 an hour doing it. No word yet on how Bernie would pay for this boondoggle other than “taxing the wealthy” — who, presumably, will continue working at whatever it is they do rather than taking a Bernie-supplied government gig.

As of this writing, Sanders’ office still hadn’t announced the full plan — including the most important aspect, how to pay for it.

It’s bad enough that government workers, on average, earn nearly 80 percent more than private-sector workers. But according to a new survey from Rasmussen Reports, almost half the country supports Sanders’ inherently unworkable scheme.

“Senator Bernie Sanders is looking ahead to the 2020 presidential election with a proposed federal government program that guarantees all Americans a job with health insurance. Nearly half of voters like the idea,” Rasmussen notes, adding that fully 46 percent of respondents supported the idea (even before they know any of the details or what kind of damage such a program would cause to our economy and our society).

The Washington Post provided a few of them:

Sanders’s jobs guarantee would fund hundreds of projects throughout the United States aimed at addressing priorities such as infrastructure, care giving, the environment, education and other goals. Under the job guarantee, every American would be entitled to a job under one of these projects or receive job training to be able to do so, according to an early draft of the proposal.
