That's how it works out here in ther real world. No new business, no new employees. Not: more new tax breaks, more new employees. The latter is the most idiotic thing I've ever heard of.
You creid FOUL when I linked to a media source of info on tax and jobs telling me to use the authoritative govt stats. But now, you want to support your own right wing opinion by presenting other right wing opinion from they hyper partisan Heritage Society.
sorry but not buying what either of you are selling.
I am on a plane into new Orleans and it's about to land. I will be back on Friday to pick this up. In the meantime. It's a culinary vacation for my wife and I.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
I do think there was 18 - 22 million jobs created, but it CERTAINLY was not due to tax increases. That is just idiotic. There are so many factors in play with a growing economy and the new industries (computers, software, internet, cell phones) we led the world with.
I do not think increasing taxes right now is beneficial (one side calls it a tax increase, which it would be, while the other side calls is rolling back tax cuts. Same ****ing difference). But I also don't think preserving the tax cuts or even increasing them is sufficient to solve our problems of a languid economy, sufficient to bring the unemployment rate (even if it were accurately accounted for) of 9.8% or whatever back to under 5%. I agree with obvious child that a new industry is needed. I am intrigued by his mention of government lending to loosen up credit.
If you thing private industry on Wall Street bears watching....
