THEY AREN'T HIRING with the low taxes they already have! The rich paid higher taxes under Reagan, and there were actually JOBS! The Rich have had eleven years of low taxes and all they have done is outsource jobs, fire Americans and not hire Americans. What harm will actually getting them to PAY their freaking taxes at least at the rate the middle class pay hurt? They (the Right) want it all for themselves and will probably fight to the death to prevent any middle class or poor person from even getting a crumb of the pie, not to mention a piece.
The Keystone pipeline is a scam that will NOT employ Americans (it will employ Canadians and make rich oil barons MORE rich, I don't see that as progress.)
The economy will not recover until the real estate market turns around. The real estate market will not recover until the job market turns around. The job market will not turn around until entrepreneurs find a better regulatory and TAX environment to stimulate hiring of more people. (If you own a business and whether or not it’s barely making it, how can you justify hiring just one more employee and expect to sell products when you, as an owner, face HIGHER taxes or costly Obamacare mandates?) You don’t stay in business when you loose money! Its got everything to do with taxes! The solution to a better job is a better education!
Of all the people who file tax returns, more than 46% DO NOT pay TAXES (and even get a credit back). How can you justify the rest of the people who do pay taxes, to pay HIGHER taxes? The entrepreneur who CREATES the jobs will not hire anyone if they have to pay more in taxes and other business costs. Furthermore, it is irresponsible for homeowners to put nothing down and then expect Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac to guarantee the loans with taxpayer dollars? This caused the economic collapse in the first place. Add to this economic lesson the fact that, in three years, the Obama administration has added over 4 trillion dollars in deficits in the name of stimulus; this just has NOT worked. Don’t expect higher taxes on those of us who DO pay taxes to bail out the rest of the country as the solution to the problem. It is a shared sacrifice, not big government to redistribute the wealth. Under his administration this country has moved closer to a socialistic welfare state and not one of a capitalistic paycheck state! This is why the Dodd-Frank Act and Obamacare Act have to be repealed and the Cap & Trade bill should never be enacted. We are going in the wrong direction. This is not the ‘hope and change’ I want. We cannot describe this matter in terms of class warfare; rich vs. poor.
As far as the Keystone XL project, we need to be energy independent and this WOULD be a jobs creating project; it is NOT a scam.
Finally the argument that Obama is getting no cooperation from Republicans is a weak one. When he had a democratically controlled Congress for two years and a 60 vote majority proof Senate, he squandered it; he had no excuses then just as much as there are no excuses now. He did not lead!!
