    Bzzzzt. Wrong answer. EPA is impacting the coal industry very heavily. 60000 jobs with a significant payroll impact are closing solely due to EPA requirements that were not passed as part of a legislative bill but as regulations that EPA self promulgated.

    The House Republican Plan for America's Job Creators - GOP.gov its about time the false talking point of "the republicans have no plan" is gone. They have one, the left just doesnt like it, nor does the media. The House has passed some 17 bills that are economic in nature and are intended for job creation. Harry Reid has had many of them on his desk for a long time.

    There are some I dont agree with like 2682 and 2779 because default swaps and derivatives are da debil.

    The fact that you have to place in the incorrect progressive talking point that "tax cuts don't work" shows that you are only regurgitating what Debbie Wasserman Schultz vomits, and you are there to lick it up.

    So, are you compiling the list?

    Tax cuts don't create jobs...demand creates jobs...

    expressed demand is a function of supply.

    Free trade pacts - check (these only help big corps ship jobs off shore and create tax havens...bad move by Obama
    Patent reform - check
    energy production - check (domestic production is up double digits from Bush)

    so you are pretty much left with cutting taxes on the rich and cutting regulations, which is exactly why we are in the mess we are in...great!!!

    does that mean you can't answer the question?


    Theoretical Demand is infinite. Theoretically, at a certain price, I have a demand for a herd of Clydesdale's. Expressed demand is what I am able and willing to actually trade for, and it is a function of supply. You can't trade for goods or services until you have something to trade.

    Trying to stimulate growth by "increasing demand", therefore, is pushing on a string. You aren't pulling the right lever.

    Are you really implying that growth and increased demand aren't directly linked? Right now we're seeing evidence to the contrary, minimal growth despite relatively friendly tax rates due to the dip in disposable income for the lower and middle classes (hence less demand for products in general.) We've seen economies in the past with much higher tax rates on the wealthy flourish because of the success in the lower and middle class (more disposable income to be spent on products that aren't deemed necessities) not because of tax cuts for the business owners themselves. It's almost impossible to separate the two concepts.
