Obama Should Hire America! End Tax Breaks for Big Business!
The Government should be concentrating on job creation!
America is unfriendly to Business with all the regulation.
With De Regulation Businesses can grow and create jobs!
Businesses need lower taxes in order to create jobs and compete.
The Government needs to create a Business Friendly enviorment!
Is it a Governments role to create jobs?
I, personally would not mind if President Obama created a FDR style workers program for the unemployed labor of this country. I believe that it would be a great boon to the country. The country's infrastructure is falling apart and we have more than enough labor and more than enough need. America would benefit for the next 75 years if we upgraded and repaired our highways, levies and bridges alone.
But wouldn't that create a deficit for the country Mista Jaycee?
No, it would not be a deficit for the country. America would see an immediate return on it's investment with a labor force that is building up it's own infrastructure, (2) A labor force that is being trained in various skills, (3) A labor force that spends it's income on products that it needs boosting the country's economy. (4) There would be possible reductions in crime, (5) no unemployment, (6) Skilled labor that could go into private sector work, the country could tailor job and skill training in areas it needs and the private sector could take it over and service the country.
I believe leaving America's labor unemployed taxes the health care system, and state and local governments without any of the benefits listed above.
But is it the Governments role to create jobs?
In a state of Emergency it is the Government's role and duty to create jobs, just like it is the Government's job to tax and police it borders. We are in a state of Emergency now. The country's unemployment rate is at 11%.
Well if the Government gave Businesses tax breaks and didn't burden the Business community with so much red tape and regulations then businesses could hire.
That's simply not true!
Why Mista Jaycee? Why is that not true?
The Government has given many Corporations tax breaks and subsidies for decades now. The Business community has taken that savings and placed the earnings in off shore accounts, they closed factories, they've laid off workers. They've moved factories overseas for years irregardless of Democratic or Republican Administrations. They reneged on Pension and health care obligations they agreed to pay their employees, shifting the burdens to the States. Think about it. How many factories were built under Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama? That's Five Republican administrations to Three in over a thirty year period.
When GM Motors began to use robotic/mechanized assembly how many workers were put out of a job? When the Shipyards mechanized, how many dock workers, longshoremen and stevedores were let go? When the shipping industry was required to build double bottomed ships for eco protection, how many ships were built in America? Where is our steel industry? How many machinists, tool and dye makers, mechanics and electrical technicians are out of work or find themselves unable to find work that pays what their predecessors made?
Well, it was technological advances that made that occur Mista Jaycee.
Partially true, but it was big businesses failure to train and re-hire it's labor force.
Why Mista Jaycee?
Business had no problem implementing the new technology to create it's product faster and cheaper. Business also demanded a tax break from the Fed, and more of the same from State and local govs. Big Businesses pays far less than smaller business on water and sewage. It pays far less in taxes benefiting local governments. Why should the Government give Business anymore tax breaks? Why should Local, State and Federal branches keep the taxes low for Big Business? Business has not reinvested in America. If the factories are off-shore then America does not benefit. If the labor can not work and buy a home on their salary or educate their children then what benefits does America get from allowing business to have these perks. China and Mexico have cheap labor forces but that only benefits Business not America.
The Government in my opinion should eliminate tax breaks with big business and create it's own labor force, hiring big businesses best and brightest until big business gets the message that They need to give back to the country not just take.
But hell what do I know. Chime in!
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
