"Why don't we just put everyone in the United States on the federal government payroll and call it a day?"

The Senate is expected to tackle a "jobs bill" this month, which is could sic the American people with billions in more debt.

The "Jobs for Main Street Act" costs $174 billion, and is referred to by Republicans as the "son of the stimulus," which cost $787 billion without any bipartisan support whatsoever.

Why don't we just put everyone in the United States on the federal government payroll and call it a day?
