    Bush lowered the rates to nearly 0%? I must have missed that one.

    Tax rates don't determine jobs, profitability does.

    Simple fix -- make income tax only on what the owners take home. Any dollar spent on growing the business is tax free.

    It depends on where the tax cuts are directed. The problem our economy currently faces is NOT that businesses don't have the money to hire people; many of them are sitting atop huge piles of cash. The problem is that businesses don't have (or think they don't have) a large enough customer base to make it PROFITABLE to hire more people.

    Payroll tax cuts, lower-bracket income tax cuts, and corporate tax cuts are fine with me. Higher-bracket income tax cuts and estate tax cuts are a horrible idea...in fact those rates should be higher than they are now (a little higher for the top income tax rates and a lot higher for estate taxes).

    He also produced a balanced budget. Something Reagan and both Bushes were unable to do.

    Gingrich deserves some credit, but not all of it.

    Well once again....I guess we will have to go with COINCIDENCE......

    Who is to say that unemployment wouldn't have dropped even farther without the tax cuts?
    If you were an employer, would you be (more/less) likey to hire if you had (more/less) money?

    When it comes to job creation, the only way I know of to it is to create a demand, and then go into business supplying for that demand.
    Which hopefully your going to learn someday is 100% wrong.......

    For I would ask, what are you Demanding right now?..........how are you conveying that Demand to the Entreprenuer?

    Demand plays a role.....its just not the lead role as you would like to portray it......

    As such, I would speculate that jobs are created in times of great invention, and when the middle class has money to spend on luxuries.
    Yes a tax cut would help the middle class.........

    If the middle class has more money to spend on luxuries, then more companies will have a niche to fill to supply those luxuries.
    So the same would apply to everyone.........if government took less of their money.........Tax Cut--Hello!

    By luxuries, I mean everything from monogrammed handkerchiefs to the latest toy that kids want for Christmas to better cars and houses, and everything in between. A larger and wealthier middle class can consume more, and so more commerce and industry can be supported. The upper class, meanwhile, is far too small to consume on that scale. Even if they had all the money in the world, they simply couldn't spend it fast enough to keep an economy going.
    Well how many times have you been hired by a Poor Person?

    Reagan and Bush were unsuccessful due to lies and dishonesty by Democrats.

    Really? Is this in answer to my question about cutting the rates on companies to 0% or near 0%? If yes, please explain why jobs would not become more available.

    Well I would say your solution exists today.......as any dollar spent on the business is a deduction. But its not to say there arent 10,000 other ways of making business growth and expansion easier in The Divided Socialist States of ObamAmerica.
