    Republican politicians continue to repeat ad nauseum that the reason they defend low tax rates for the wealthy is to sustain an environment which creates new jobs. Tax rates at this time are the lowest they've been in nearly 50 years. Why is the unemployment rate hovering around 9%

    Over 113,000 pages of new regs have been passed this year alone.

    New companies can no longer afford to start up b/c they can't understand all the regs and can't afford the team of lawyers that can.

    therefore big biz has no new competition to lose employees too. And since they can only expect more regs, thus increasing the cost of doing biz, they must wait it out or risk loosing enough capital to compete.

    As someone who has first hand experience of this exact thing, I can say nothing but that this is the ABSOLUTE truth.

    Wait. Wasn't Obama promising us jobs obs jobs? Didnt he promise to roll out one program after another? Weren't we supposed to have Recovery Summer, like oh last year or something? Doesn't Obama still occupy the White House? Don't Dems still control the Senate?
    Why did Obama kill a pipeline measure that would have provided millions of jobs? Why did he shut down Gulf oil production, costing thousands of jobs? Why does he press for more and more regulation and taxation in the face of 9% unemployment?

    To get re-elected, of course

    Who would you vote for>

    a. The meanies that want to take away your money just before Christmas
    b. The loving fathers that want to keep giving you money so you don't have to work


    It's the perfect plan. It worked to enslave blacks and hispanics to them, so now they can go after the formally working middle class.:badgrin::eusa_clap::badgrin:

    Lowering taxes in 2001 did create jobs. We had near full employment until 2006 when Democrats took office.

    At this point, increasing taxes would burden the economy. refusing to raise taxes isnt going to create jobs, it's just going to prevent us from losing more jobs.

    If you want to see job creation explode in record numbers you will recommend:

    1) Cutting taxes further
    2) Serious spending cuts, and
    3) Eliminating regulation.

    Do these three things, and you will see unprecedented economic growth. Unfortunately, the last President to actually accomplish this was Calvin Coolidge. Amost 90 years ago. Since he left office, startng with Hoover onward there has been nothing but big government politicians in control.

    Ask Obama. Apparently, he's the President.

    It's more like tens of thousands of jobs so i guess it's too small a number for Obama.
