    The Govn't doesn't create jobs.

    The best it can do is not do the things that destroy job creation in the private sector.

    In the early 1900s, total government spending was 7% of GDP. Now it is over 42%.

    This is why we are not creating jobs.

    You want jobs?

    - Descope government to essentials
    - Cut spending dramatically
    - Reform accounting to the accrual method
    - Pass a balanced budget amendment
    - Cut Taxes

    These will free the private sector to CREATE JOBS.

    Why do we have to blame government for the economy not creating jobs? I think the fault is on the business sector. It's not like they enjoy creating jobs. Employees cost money. The real problem is that our country is caught in the grip of a business system that favors the country having a high unemployment rate.

    The government could cut corporate taxes to zero and eliminate every single regulation on businesses and that would do nothing to change the fact that foreign workers will work for a fraction of what their American counterparts will.

    How's that NA Free Trade agreement (deal) working out for ya?

    You know products being freely traded between North American countries. Products that used to be built here by American workers are now being built in foriegn countries and shipped back here (that's the free trade part) and sold for about the same price as it was before, but the bottom line is profits are up.

    Support services work the same way.

    You just don't get it do you?

    A business will hire when a new employee will add more to the bottom line than he costs the employer.

    The problem is that the economy sucks right now and there is not much need to hire since in all likelihood a new employee will cost more than he can add to the bottom line.

    The only sector of the economy that doesn't care about the bottom line is the government and we have all seen where that gets us.

    That's rather nonsensical. How is it beneficial to a business for people to not have disposable income? Businesses dont' get a feeling one way or the other over creating jobs, i don't think. Though I would think the fact that they have to hire more people would be a sign that their business is doing well and growing.

    While we shouldn't blame government for not creating jobs (because that's not their job). We can certainly blame them for policies that discourage job growth.
