MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell attacked the idea that the government was incapable of creating jobs during his ‘Rewrite’ segment.

“It has become a matter of religious belief for Republicans that government does not create jobs,” he said. “The Republican grip on reality has been loosening every day for years now. We are moving ever closer to the point where the diagnosis of their collective dementia may have to declare them lost to reality forever. How much more lost can these people get?”
