I think the reasoning behind hiring more government workers to increase revenue is that they would spend the money and that would increase demand then businesses would buy more products and then producers will increase production then both would hire employees to keep up with demand. That's why I believe it's better in the long run to give more money to the people than corporations. The bottom up theory instead of the trickle down theory if you will. The taxpayer money that the government used to bail out the banks instead of letting them go under should have gone back to the taxpayers to pay down or pay off their mortgages. That way the banks would get back some of their investments and the citizens would then have more than enough money to get the economy up and running again. That could have worked worldwide. But instead our money went back to their buddies to invest in bonuses and golden parachutes. And yes the government should stop the war on drugs and protect our borders I agree with that 100%.
Great points! Let's think this through...

Which scenerio do you think would provide the most value and sustainability to both the the CITIZENS of the US and our economy?

A. Hire more GOVERNMENT workers, which take more tax dollars to support. This simultaneously takes money AWAY from both the private sector AND TRUE tax rolls. Even if they spend the money, it is TAX money they earn and pay taxes on tax money, and then are spending and paying TAXES on, so we have this hole we are constantly digging for ourselves.

B. Give hiring tax incentives to SMALL and medium sized businesses that can show that either the money went toward additional hiring, additional wages for current employees or benefits for employees. Not only does this increase the number of people that can spend and/or increase the amount they can spend but it is also giving the government LESS tax revenue, so they will then have to make some decisions about programs, agencies and duplicate services.

I support both. With option B who would oversee the hiring incentives? Option B could do both hire more federal employees to oversee the new programs and stimulate more private business hiring. If that's the case B would be better in the long run.

How excellent!

While I see no compelling reason to hire Federal and State workers right now in their already overly-layered approach, I would not be opposed to more Federal and State hiring if the case could be made for that, AFTER we have stripped out the duplication of services.(sorry for the run on sentence).

Option B would always be my preference. We don't need any additional help to "oversee", as tax filing forms will tell the story. So will increases in spending, both consumer and business (in the form of new or additional health benefits, etc)

I like the way you think. You give credence to your moniker!
