We've never based our hiring practices on tax rate. That's insane. It's about what is needed for the best operation of our business and what the roster looks like.Anyone that says that taxes don't affect the retail business is out of touch with reality and has no credibility.
Yes we have a consumer driven economy that is true. The bailout didn't occur because the Government is broken, mind you, it's because the market's spoke started to shatter and people were flipping their ****. If anything the bailout was to stop a return to the madness of the early 20th century when people started to take their entire savings out of banks. Consumer driven economy also means an economy that is driven by passion, to a degree.We have a consumer driven economy that requires consumer spending to drive it. Lower taxes means more take home pay and thus more spendable income.
But for the purpose of this thread, your beef with Obama is that he has not delivered public sector jobs. Which is crazy on another part (in cohort with the portion I've posted on above).... Obama does not make economic policy.No companies should have been bailed out IMO but I do understand TARP most of which has been paid back.
