Just like the last election Obama isn't focusing on job creation but instead job destruction. Obama wants to attack the job creators through taxiation. The solution is simple. Pass a bill granting a yearly reduction of your total tax burdon for each new hire that has exceeded a 6 month minimum with the company. The exact amount of the deduction could be negotiated but a large carrot would be best. Any decrease in revenues could easily be offset by the revenues gained from the new hire. On top of that new hires would then be capable of spending beyond what they could as the unemployed further sparking the economy. Yet Obama wants to just raise taxes thinking our economy will respond like it did during the tech explosion of the Clinton years. Even me, a construction person, can see the upside to ideas like mine as well as the downside to those Obama proposes. Which leaves one question...... What is his motivation? It certainly doesn't appear to be to create jobs or better the economy. Any stimulus will only impact the market once. Then the money dries up and were right back where we started only deeper in debt.
