Does the federal government owe you a job?

Bernie Sanders thinks so. So does Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand. And according to a Rasmussen poll earlier this week, so do almost half of all Americans. Forty-six percent of respondents support government-guaranteed jobs for everyone, although the wording leaves the kind of job somewhat ambiguous:
Senator Bernie Sanders is looking ahead to the 2020 presidential election with a proposed federal government program that guarantees all Americans a job with health insurance. Nearly half of voters like the idea.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a proposal to create a federal jobs program that would guarantee every American at least a $15-an-hour job with health benefits. Forty percent (40%) are opposed, while 15% are undecided.
The question did not identify the proposal with Sanders or mention that it has the support of fellow Democratic Senators Kristen Gillibrand and Cory Booker.
