As a business owner I had to lay off 10 worjers this year because my sales were down. The only way I need more workers is if my sales go up. For my sales to go up I need consumers to buy my product. Simple and thats the way ot works for the big companies too.
So, the consumer needs money so they can buy products and I can hire workers.
The Goverment needs to give every taxpayer 100k on January 1st and trust me they will spend it.
All the money that went to banks was a waste. It will not spur hiring.
Simple nd I wasn't even invited to the White House.
Here is a real serious idea that is similiar: offer anyone over 50 years old a "buyout" of $200k to retire. Now companies can hire younger people. Corps do this kind of thing all the time and it works.
But ultimately the USA must produce goods that others want to buy. "Green jobs", alternative energy innovation.
Obama said he would do it, and so far has done nothing but added to our waste fraud and abuse and war quota. Pull all troops out of Iraq before you put more in Afg. same shit different president.
