    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.
    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.
    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.


    No companies should have been bailed out IMO but I do understand TARP most of which has been paid back.
    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.

    this is the most insular white house i've ever seen

    i could deliver you links from journo lister elites who feel the same way

    his economic advisers mostly QUIT

    remember romer, orszag and summers?

    sincerely, it appears to me that this president is INSECURE in the presence of outsiders

    his TEAM, it appears, pretty much has to come from chicago, liberal academia or the basketball court

    Of course you don't but you do hire based upon demand for the goods and services you provide and have to know that people with more spendable income have the opportunity to spend some of that on your goods and services and all that begins with tax rates which determine spendable income.

    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 ****.

    .

    There were a number of bailouts so lets make sure we are on the same page, which bailouts did you support if any? I don't recall a run on the banks so enlighten me. Of course I live in TX which seems to be better off than the rest of the country and may have missed it.

    You are kidding, right, you believe I am for public sector jobs? Haven't been around much have you? Read my posts. I am for the private sector and believe the govt. is too big and that size is promoted by Obama. If Obama doesn't make economic policy with a Democrat Congress who does?

    The shovel ready jobs and the green jobs are all in the same place; somewhere in Obama's imagination...

    Hopefully the elections of Nov. 2 will keep him in check. Just get ready for the media outrage over what the Republicans are going to do.
