Any Jobs created in the public sector destroys jobs in the private sector. Governments don't create real jobs. Government salaries are payed for with taxes, borrowing or printing which puts a burden on taxpayers, employers, value of the dollar and the overall economy. Also Government spending reduces more jobs in the private sector than it can create in the government sector. Congress need to take some economic classes and look at the studies done world wide and look at what history has taught us. Countries with large government sectors, like France and Germany, tend to have much higher unemployment rates than countries with smaller government sectors. Slowing the growth in government spending would speed job growth. Making the Bush tax cuts permanent would give business incentive to expand and hire new workers. America needs a big reduction in the corporate tax rate. So long as America’s rate is far higher than other nations, companies will have an incentive to create jobs abroad. The current system is bad for America, but critics have the wrong solution. Instead of making the U.S. tax code even more punitive by ending deferral, we need a reduction in the corporate tax rate. So long as America’s rate is far higher than other nations, companies will have an incentive to create jobs abroad. If the price of oil and other commodities continue to rise in dollar terms, this will not only slow our economic growth but could stop the recovery. We need to be aggressive about stopping the oil price increases. Insist that the market set the price not speculators. American policymakers should make a commitment to true free trade and to the elimination of all of America's trade barriers. These are steps that won't cost taxpayers anything unlike the policies your are trying to put forward. Big Government leads to fraud and wasteful spending. plain and simple. We need less Government to grow not more!
