Can someone explain this to me?

Can someone explain to me this meme of “The government never created a single job”?

Schoolteachers, police, and fire departments spring to mind, as do interstate highways, the USPS, the Army, water purification plants, Navy, aquaducts, Lockheed-Martin, and the REA. You can argue that it’s private citizens tax money that pays for those, but that’s why we have governments. We agree to do some things collectively because no individual could afford them, or it just makes sense. And et voila! Jobs!
