Get Government Out of the Way!
Here we go. This is State-Controlled AP: “America’s sickly economy can be healed with jobs, jobs and more jobs. On that, everyone agrees. Figuring out how to produce them is what is stumping everyone,” says AP. “Other than letting time take its course, Washington lacks a clear answer on how to create permanent new jobs on a national scale. Forecasters suggest it will take 20 million new jobs over the next 10 years just to repair recession damage and to keep pace with adult population growth. … Lots of schemes have been tried or floated — first under Republican President George W. Bush and now under Democrat Obama. More than $2 trillion have been plowed into spending…”
Anyway, this thing goes on to say that quoting Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office: “Neither side can make a definitive case that they really know what they’re doing.” So the newest spin is that either side has an answer here. Of course, this is patently absurd. “Other than letting time take its course, Washington lacks a clear answer on how to create permanent new jobs on a national scale”? How about stop trying? How about get… I’m gonna have to watch myself. I am on the brink here. I almost said the F-bomb. I know we’ve got a 40-second delay and I almost said it anyway, just to get it out of my system. “Just get the hell out of everybody’s way!” There’s a story in here. Another CEO has come out and basically said the same thing, a series of CEOs: “Just stop this! Washington, just get out of the way. Stop doing all of this.”
