I was remembering how many times on this site that I have heard "No new taxes until the government can prove it can stop spending."
As I was reflecting on this another though occurred to me. If cutting taxes creates jobs, then reinstate the tax and instead offer a tax incentive to those who actually create jobs. Not the Madghiqual Math that so often comes from the Hill, but real additional jobs. Adding 1200 jobs while sending 1200 overseas wouldn't qualify. Net gain is what I am talking about here.
A nice level playing field.
