Under Reagan, the US govt funded ~620k *additional* GOVT jobs over the first four years.

Under Obama, the US govt CUT almost ~500k GOVT jobs over the first four years.

That is a DIFFERENCE of almost 1.2-million *DIRECT* jobs--plus another (say) 800k to 1.2-million INDIRECT jobs cut by conservatives.

Not to mention, US population in Reagan's day was around 230 million. It would have been like 830k jobs today.
