Government should hire in IRS may be 50,000 to 100,00 new IRS agents and aggressively increase business audits and start collecting taxes from businesses who are hiding. This will probably cost nothing to tax payers as each additional audit should pay for that agents salaryplus more. Start giving IRS agents incentives to collect

SEC - Should hire thousands more auditors to go after wall street companies this will create more jobs in govt plus all these wall street companies will have to hire more people to answer to these auditors issues.

Also other departments such as Department of Energy (Convert all buildings to use solar power ) that should create plenty of private sector jobs, Department of Homeland should hire border patrol for southern states, People should even stop volunteering for big hospitals as they can pay for those services and hire unemployeds.

Department of Justice should expand so that civil law suits arizing from the regulatory agencies can handle the load quickly.

Would also add at least 500,000 jobs to EPA and FDA and have all oil,coal,chemical,power(that use coal or oil or nuke), large corp.agriculture,and drug corps and have them pay into a fund that covers this cost without provisions to raise their rates. All our safety net programs have been slashed in budgets for close to 30 years and they now can't cover our asses.

You are right, Republicans keep talking about big government and when we look back every agency is running under staffed. Why don't democrate see this an opportunity to increase governance so that Republicans can see how fast it will create jobs and shut thier chances for ever.

If Democrats can fund $50 Billion from TARP funds, they can easily create 1M jobs each paying $50,000/yeare. Plus all the additional taxes and other fees treasury will collect. It will solve some problems.

What they should do is add government agencies recruiting agents at all the military hiring offices. This will be a good use of real estate without incurring any additional expenses of opening new offices.
