It's impossible because we...have...no...money.
The old 'we have no money' excuse. You seem to be under the impression that money is something besides sheets of paper or numbers on a spreadsheet.
Money is not a scarce resource the government can print it into existence, or borrow it at extremely low rates of interest.
They can go and spend further and further into debt and thereby negate every gain they make with the new "money" while adding more doom
Dooooom, Doooom. There might be a level of debt that would somehow sink the united states, but I haven't seen any evidence that we are
anywhere near it. We do have a major problem with unemployment, which is real, and here now. We should deal with it.
I'd say Government is better off lowering some taxes...
Lowering corporate taxes would make corporations more profitable, but there's no reason that they would hire people just because they have more
money. Businesses hire people because they need more workers to meet demand, not because they have some need to spend money.
I was raised to believe you rewarded or helped succeed in what you wanted to see while penalizing and sanctioning what you did not want to see.
Yes, and that is why we need programs that will put americans to work, get them off welfare, and restore full employment.
business (those people who actually DO make jobs which last more than the duration of a make-work program) is being hit from all directions, regularly
to make their life harder and harder?
Corporate profits are at an all time high, so I don't think that business is being seriously 'hit from all directions'. They are not
creating the jobs necessary to put this country back to full employment. Government action will be necessary, like it or not.
You'd almost think business success and job creation were what the Government was against and wanted to see LESS of, not more.
I agree... government has done far too little in the way of job creation. I hope the full-employment caucus is successful in changing this.
