President Obama outlined a response to the nation's intensifying job crisis Tuesday that encourages businesses to hire new workers by easing the flow of credit and implementing a series of tax cuts, but leaves important details -- including the cost of the plan -- to be hashed out by Congress.
PardonMyFrench - it will be interesting to see what kind of jobs package gets approved in Congress. Notice the comment towards the end regarding a strong Public Sector. There are a long of strong Liberals-Progressives who think Public Sector is the way to get out of a recession - that translates into more Government jobs given out by favors, pork, etc while helping Big Labor, These factions are trying to get larger and larger pieces of your tax dollars, but this doesn't help the private sector job creation where real wealth is created.
Finally, the cash for caulkers plan is probably a tactical blunder by Obama. It is almost laughable in its name and shows he is disconnected from "main street", I'll take that "caulker" money and do it myself.
