    If tax rates are too high, then cutting taxes does put more money into play, which in theory, should lead to more spending and more jobs. However, if cutting taxes is done just so that Peter can pay Paul, then there is no benefit. We have been in that situation for quite some time now, and cutting taxes further is not the answer. If it had been the answer, unemployment would be 5% now instead of 10% to 15%.

    Actually, the answer is partially yes. The ONLY thing that creates jobs is demand. That's one of the basics of capitalism. If people have a few extra bucks and spend it, then that could lead to jobs. If they save it, then no. If they have no job, then no. If there is no demand, then no. That's how it works in the real world.

    In Republicanland, if you give companies subsidies, they will magically create jobs without healthcare and at less then minimum wage. But that stops at the border of Republicanland.

    No, "fucktard", cut spending, and then cut it some more. It's about time everyone, corporations, banks, unions, individuals, everyone, get rid of this notion of government being responsible for every fucking nosebleed in the country, hell, world.

    That's the difference between us, you think it's up to government to create jobs for you, I want them to get out of the way and let America do what America does, or used to do. Get government out of the way and the jobs will come.
