    no, they wish for the opposite, or at least for less govt interference. at least, that's how i understand it. you'd have to be delusional to think the govt doesn't affect the economy at this point

    Government action is not total causation around the entire US private economy... economic decisions by the federal govt can positively and negatively effect the economy, jobs, etc... but it is not the end-all-be-all cause to all aspects of our private economy... many many factors

    The government can pass legislation that causes business to lose interest in doing business. Conversly government can also leave things alone and when businesses know what is happening they can make capital investments accordingly. That will drive business.

    Too subtle for the weak-minded lefties here. Everything has to be couched in the following terms:
    Bush-BAD
    Obama-GOOD
    Democrats-GOOD
    Republicans-BAD
    Government-GOOD
    Corporations-BAD.

    They can't comprehend anything mroe complex than that.
