If you notice, the thread title says STARTS making instead on just MAKING jobs. I believe that the government can't create jobs on it's own because it's a process and it only starts with the gov and trickles down. I also believe there is no one solution and there needs to be many things done for good results. Some of the first things needed to be done is to make unemployment go down, is start ELIMINATING THOSE TAXES AND REGULATIONS. Many of the jobs are going overseas because the government believes in putting in ridiculous regulations and taxes. If we start removing these, this will motivate the businesses to come back to our soil to set up shop here, making China not as powerful in the process. ELIMINATE INCOME TAX. You cannot tax hardworking Americans for their hard work and dedication. It's stupid. It might reduce the amount of money the government is bringing in but it can find other ways to make money(cut spending even further, reduce deficit, cut, cap and balance amendment) CUT POWER OF EPA. Right now, carmakers are under increased pressure to meet too stringent fuel efficiency demands. This drives up costs so people can't buy as much cars as they want and causes lay offs because of lower sales and not as much money coming in to pay employees. Audit EVERY US department even the federal reserve. Check out what the departments are spending on. I hear one department is spending 200 million on conferences.($16 muffins and $8 coffee)We need to cut the spending on unnecessary things in these departments. REMOVE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION What is the point of it? Every state should deal with education not the government. It's a waste of money. Every state already has their own department of education(FLDOE, Florida Department of Education) What do you think about the above?
