Meet the New Proposals on Job Creation
Same as the old proposals on job creation.
The president is thinking about proposing tax cuts for companies that hire workers, new spending for roads and construction, and other measures that would target the long-term unemployed, according to administration officials and other people familiar with the matter.
1) Companies cannot hire workers they don’t need, tax cuts don’t matter nor do they even begin to offset the cost of hiring and/or letting go when they don’t work out.
2) Spending for roads and construction? More “shovel ready” jobs, I assume.
Obama also plans to announce a major push for new deficit reduction, urging the special congressional committee formed in the debt-ceiling deal this month to identify even more savings than the $1.5 trillion it has been tasked with finding.
In packaging the two, he will make the case that short-term spending can lead to long-term savings.
“Short-term spending”? He’s been on a spending spree since he took office.
Obama has no idea how to spur job creation, because he’s never worked a job in the private sector, never hired anyone, never been hired by anyone outside of government, never made payroll, etc …
