The only job cuts from less government spending are jobs that depend on government money in the first place. The only place that money comes from is from people who want to spend that money on OTHER jobs. Principle: Government, in and of itself, produces no wealth. The ONLY way government can spend any single dollar is to take it from somebody who made it. New Zealand underwent an abrupt change of parties in their government when it was discovered that there were 1.1 million people on welfare there, and only 1.2 million people working to support them all. Massive government change in less than 6 months.
