There is no evidence that candidates from the business community make the best politicians. They are much too eager to give our tax dollars away to the corporate community without solid foundation as to why. Speculation is not a solid foundation. There is no solid evidence that tax cuts produce tons of jobs. If tax cuts/tax incentives produced tons of jobs the USA would be standing in the sea of job surplus. Still a Bad Idea | Dollars & Sense If business people make the best candidates why did the USA become a boom town economy? Boom town economies always crash this is not new economics. There are way too many free lunch programs . "Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (And Stick You with the Bill)" More republican thinkers anywhere in government is a recipe for economic disaster. Remember Reagan/Bush and Bush/Cheney home loan frauds = job losses by the millions. Millions of jobs were lost during the FIRST Savings and Loan/home loan scandal and during the global economy push = outsourcing under Reagan-Bush. Yes republicans gave outsourcing a wide open door as they began waving good bye to the best paying USA jobs. Then Bush/Quale came along. Then free trade and Clinton's NAFTA came along. Bush/Cheney lost 2 million in their first admin and 9 million during the second admin when the SECOND home/loan scandal surfaced. The USA is down about 20 million jobs. No new industry has been been developed to bring those jobs and their pay scales back = loss of national wealth. No country,state or city can afford companies that send jobs abroad. Its called Wreckanomics.
