    Bernanke doesn't seem to have a lot of faith in it right now.

    Yeah but if you print more money, MORE FAITH!

    That makes sense winston, right?

    Ironically that is all Bernanke knows. His economic knowledge is laughable to say the least.

    So you are saying allow the government to increase taxes, then form a partnerships with business to create jobs …. sounds like a big boondoggle to me

    Why not cut out the middle man …. and just tell businesses for each job your create we will give you a tax break of X amount and will do so .. until we reach a trillion dollars in spending ….. isn't that the same thing ??

    Also … haven't we nearly tried this with the 800 billion dollar stimulus bill ? ( remember all those shovel ready jobs?) Seeing as unemployment has risen since it's implementation why would a sane person want to give them another trillion dollars to execute another plan …. by the very same people who failed with the first 800 billion given them ??

    I will give you this .. .the way it's presented it does sound appealing …... but after seeing how well the first job creation stimulus plan worked out ….. I vote a resounding “NO”

    We don't need more bureaucrats, so no thanks.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Sort of like they did to get more people into their own home.

    Why not cut out the middle man …. and just tell businesses for each job your create we will give you a tax break of X amount and will do so .. until we reach a trillion dollars in spending ….. isn't that the same thing ??
    Since the Dems are so giddy over more taxation, I'd even accept taxing those who send jobs overseas at a higher rate. This was one of Obama's campaign promises.

    Yes, there are many things that sound good on paper but doesn't work in real life.

    Both of our opinions are subjective, but I'm willing to bet yours is more subjective than mine.
    Creating jobs to do busy work, doesn't provide a net benefit to anyone, except the job holder.

    your statement above is purely subjective.

    There is plenty of redundancy and just plain busy work in corp America. As well as reward for abject failure.

    Unfortunately, it has also been the government rewarding this failure as of late.
