Government doesn't create jobs, the private sector creates jobs. Washington doesn't seem to understand this basic premise and has created an environment that penalizes business expansion and investment. Washington's response to an economic recession was to add another 862 billion dollars to our national debt for President Obama's "stimulus Program". A program even President Obama now admits was a failure.
Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy and represent roughly 98 percent of employers. They are being punished with higher taxes and oppressive regulation that stifle new growth, development, and productive investments in our communities. Tax and regulatory reform is a critical step in moving our economy and job creation in the right direction.
Ending the spending spree in Washington and subsequently reining in massive deficits and debt is also a critical to renewing consumer confidence to spend and business confidence to invest and create the jobs we need.
