You are 100% correct. This isn't the country it used to be and probably will never be again. After we become the next Greece the liberal democrats who just don't understand business will somehow point their finger at someone else. In today's economy, the last thing we should be doing is anything that results in job loss for the sake of extreme liberalism.
You nailed it. 10 days ago the president after the jobs report said 225,000 jobs were lost in June, proudly told us that he was creating 1,500 permanent green jobs by giving a Spanish solar company in Arizona and an American company $2 Billion. That works out to be a cost of $1.33 Million per permanent job. Now THERE is a plan. Obama (as every already knows) is anti-business according Jeff Immelt. The jobs just keep leaving the United States because of our tax code and because of our policies. With 17 million people unemployed & under employed the answer must be "Let's go hug a tree!"
