Mitt Romney jobs plan: Can it create 11 million jobs in four years? - CSMonitor.com
Anything is possible, Create the Right environment for it, and there is not Much the Private Sector can not do. Though I do think it is rather unwise of Romney to make such Bold Promises.
Would be very hard...5-6 million is possible, while 7-8 is doable with a lot of hard work and good policies. I think Bush made about 5 million if I remember.(Before he losted a crap load of them of course)
If he uses Obama math, he can double that, easily.....
Why do I get the feeling that once a Republican is in the WH, the Press will suddenly decide that "saved" Jobs no longer count
90 percent of the press on t.v or news paper are democrats. So you bet.
You have to wonder is there some gene in republicans when out of power that causes them to say the dumbest things? Bush Jr reduced taxes, allow me to repeat that, Bush Jr reduced taxes and do you know where that got us? it has to be genetic, no one is this dumb. Reagan raised taxes, Clinton raised taxes, FDR raised taxes - those were better times.
"In terms of promoting economic growth, the Bush tax cuts have been a miserable failure. Under George W. Bush, U.S. GDP growth averaged 2.1 percent a year. Since the end of World War II, the country has never experienced such low economic growth during an eight-year period. And if you exclude the war demobilization of 1946, when U.S. government spending fell by two-thirds and GDP fell by 10.9 percent, Bush had the worst economic record since Herbert Hoover."

The tax changes didn’t do much for Vermont, either. Job growth so far this decade is worse than any decade since the 1940s. We have fewer jobs today than we had in 2000."

Do tax cuts ever "pay for themselves"? Rarely. - By Annie Lowrey - Slate Magazine
Voodoo Economics Revisited - Simon Johnson - Project Syndicate
"There is no historical evidence that tax cuts spur economic growth. The highest period of growth in U.S. history (1933-1973) also saw its highest tax rates on the rich: 70 to 91 percent. During this period, the general tax rate climbed as well, but it reached a plateau in 1969, and growth slowed down five years later. Almost all rich nations have higher general taxes than the U.S., and they are growing faster as well." Tax cuts spur economic growth
The Idolatry of Ideology-Why Tax Cuts Hurt the Economy by Russ Beaton
Some of his ideas are okay, but the fact is that we can't compete against third world labor unless we set the rules as to what is acceptable. And neither party is willing to do that, they are all in bed with the big corporations.
I found this quite interesting from the link:
That reads like there is already a projected growth and all the next Prez has to do is expound on it slightly to reach that goal.
Sure ! WW3.
