    Less Government, correctly enforced and fair regulations, no tax breaks for corporations or unions, unions to have the same kinds of regulations corporations operate under.

    Less rhetoric about initiatives that are on the docket for the near future that will likely cost employers more money such as cap and trade.

    A simple "You have our promise that we will not pass any intitiatve that will cost corporations more money until January of 2012" by ths administration will allow business owners to do the necessary forecasting to determine likely expenditures for 2011 and further allow them to incorporate a hiring budget.

    It is actually quite simple.

    The bubonic plague killing off about 1/3 of the population would certainly help the unemployment picture.

    It was the primary cause of modern capitalism as we know it, after all.

    Sure a lot of us would be dead, but the rest of us would have jobs many of which would be at a living wage, too.

    How about tax incentives for keeping jobs here and penalties for sending them overseas?

    Permanent tax cuts.

    And in January 2011, Barry and Plugs resigning, turning the WH over to a Republican Speaker of the House.

    Import restrictions, etc.

    Of course that creates it's own set of problems.

    Get the U.S. Government outta the private sector save SENSIBLE market regulations. I can tell you as a CPA and a business consultant that the private sector is resisting making long term decisions as they have no Earthly clue what this adminisitration is going to impose on them or the markets in general.
