Every time the Teabirthers "do something", the DOW loses a couple of hundred points. Business is saying they won't create jobs because there is no demand. Republicans hear, "There is uncertainty". Let's say that again. Business is saying they won't create jobs because there is no demand. Republicans are hearing, "Business won't create jobs because there is "uncertainty". Business likes the US to be a strong and stable country. It's a good place and a safe haven for them to keep their money. Remember the debt ceiling? Republicans got 98% of everything they wanted, but the downgrade was Obama's fault? Worse, Republicans, almost to a man, have signed a pledge to Grover Norquist that pretty much makes him the first confederate president since the Civil War. Business wants the US to invest in infrastructure. Business wants the next generation educated because they need the skilled workers. There are millionaires and billionaires who want taxes raised on the super rich. Not to give money away to those less fortunate, a lie that Republicans keep repeating, but for investment in US infrastructure.
