    Agreed! Until the private sector is ready to lead the charge, government will be a major player!


    It will be done be allowing the jobs to be created that match the skills of those currently unemployed...
    Empty statement.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    The private sector is being constrained, and no, the government is not the answer...

    No, i just understand the nature of our economic reality. The private sector is sitting on $3 trillion plus in short term liquidity. Tax rates are near historic lows (both corporate and individual). As previously stated, corporations are protecting shareholder value.

    How is the private sector being constrained? The user cost of capital is at levels not seen since the Great Depression. Credit is cheap and labor is abundant, and last time i checked, the U.S. is still the largest consumer market in the world.

    At what point in the discussion did we begin posting about corporations until now? Is it your position that confiscating wealth is the solution to our problems?

    If they're sitting on so much liquidity and have such low tax rates, why isn't the confidence there to spend?

    There is currently a large divide between the skill set of the unemployed and any jobs available, and that is what needs to be narrowed. Forgive me, but I'll reference you once again to ND. I'm not saying we need to rape the country, but a rational approach to private sector job growth should surely be welcome to everyone...
