"Create jobs or else"

Obviously, tax cuts don't necessarily create jobs and it's time for the Democrats to call the GOP bluff. With 15 months before the 2012 election, the Democrats need to act quickly.

Creat jobs or lose the Bush tax cuts, loop-holes, etc. We could even offer the incentive to actually cut taxes when the economy improves.

A possible solution for allowing or not allowing the tax breaks to expire on the "job creators". Tell them to create jobs within 6 months or the tax breaks expire retroactive to January 1, 2011. Problem solved!

They claim they can't hire because taxes are too high. Well, ask them if they will support this proposal:

Set the corporate tax rate at four times the unemployment rate. Then they could lower their taxes by simply hiring people and we would all be happy.

How fast will they run from that proposal? Is the speed of light really a limit?

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
