    Its not just tax cuts that aid jobs. Many people use their layoff to kickstart their own business, thus they would not be counted in the corporate job polls. So the unemployment numbers are inaccurate most of the time. It depends entirely on if they go door to door to actual residences, or just call major employers and ask if they have been hiring, the latter of which, is 99% of the time.

    Exactly. I know of many corporate guys that were laid off in the late 90's early 2000 that went on to make even more money running their own businesses as consultants. However, they are not counted as being employed as you say.

    Bush has created a TON of jobs!
    Unfortunately, most of them have been for the military, defense contractors and Halliburton.

    In spite of the tax cuts, rather because of them, tax collections are up, which is bringing the deficit down. Get it Gabby, tax cuts help create wealth, which creates more tax revenues:

    i don't think i have called anyone here 'stupid'. i think you might be the first...

    It's not the president's job to CREATE jobs. his JOB is to run the country, plain and simple. It's not his fault you went to school and studied one thing, and now can't find a job in that field you studied, because you limited yourself rather than gaining skills and knowledge that you can use in more than one type of career.

    Do you want me to send you tomorrow's edition of the jobs that are available right here in the Cities? The Sunday edition is usually 18-20 pages, all filled with ads for jobs that are needing to be filled. I have yet to see one for Haliburton, though there are military recruiting ads (and they were in there even back when clinton was prez).

    its not up to the government to create jobs, their job is to keep the
    infrastructure running and keep the money in the consumers hand
    so I can succeed with my business.

    Blaming or lauding them for the changes in the job market makes
    only sense to me when it is connected to how to tax the least
    intrusive to the market.
