In comments to the Senate Budget Committee on Feb. 9, 2011, Scott budget chief Jerry McDaniel said Scott's top tax priority was to remove taxes that he says inhibit job creation. McDaniel said Scott particularly wanted to reduce and eventually eliminate the state's corporate income tax.”
Likewise, the Republican push to lessen government is the right thing to do but by instituting it without job swapping, it will only serve to increase unemployment and lessen consumer confidence. When this occurs, the market slows and we double dip this recession. If the G.O.P. wants to truly benefit their masters on Wall Street, they would come up with a viable solution to supplant the public sector jobs with privatized ones. The Federal Government is the Nation's single largest employer. We cannot afford to have this type of short term thinking and political hacking eliminating millions of jobs in hope that the short term paper gains will elude the reality of the associative economic backlash.
If We the People truly want change, we must show up in large numbers to take advantage of our Democratic right. In the last election, only 33% of the population showed up and out of that number, 75% were Republican. Is this the way you want to go out? Lost for lack of effort? One would be served to remember that voting is not only a right, it is a responsibility. Make your voice heard and be a part of this great Nation instead of a bystander.
