    What you need to do is to quit creating excuses for corporations refusal to hire people and stop being willing to act as a sycophant and toadie for them when they even fail to achieve what you claimed that they would achieve.

    For the longest time all we ever heard is that we need to reduce corporate taxes. Why? Because we were taxing compaines to death and they had no money to hire more workers. If only the taxes could be lowered then that extra money could be used to expand and hire.

    A truckload of reeking manure does not begin to do justice to that sorry conservative meme.

    Many businesses are rolling in billions today like a pig in slop but are they hiring as promised? No way jose - no way. And do you call them on the carpet for it since the sirens of the right played nonstop to allow them just to keep more money so they would then hire? No way you will. Now you accept some other poor mouthed excuse planted in you by ALEC or CATO or some other ring wing extremist organization and you just nod your head and do the Toadie Tango or the Sycophant Shuffle and accept it while you learn the new and latest excuse.

    Of late you have repeated the schtick that business cannot tell the future so they will not hire today. As if that is something different from previous history.

    The private sector cares about one thing and only one thing - maximizing their own profits. Hiring people does not figure into that goal if it is not necessary no matter how much money they keep, or how little they are regulated or anything else.

    And I am 100% sure that if regulations were decreased this afternoon and the hiring flood did not come - the CATO's and ALEC's of this world would come up with other excuses and the warriors of the right would learn a new Toadie Tango or a new version of the Sycophant Shuffle to the new tune.

    Its worse than pathetic.

    didn't you post an article about a guy who refuses to hire more people, simply due to Obama being in office?

    that's a clear example of someone not hiring simply by choice, not due to undue regulations.

    And it is telling that you ignored everything in the post and you are powerless and impotent to refute anything in it.

    Because everything in the post is idiotic. You're trying to tell us that the unemployment rate is due to a conspiracy among corporations, to sabotage Obama. Only someone without a brain wouldn't ignore it.
