At this time, nearly every American sees an economic doomsday approaching. President Obama and leading Democrats present us with solutions geared toward increasing the revenue our government receives. Leading Republicans present us with solutions geared toward reducing the amount of spending our government does.
Our nation does NOT have a spending problem.
Our nation does NOT have a revenue problem.
Our nation does HAVE an employment problem.
If all who want jobs, had jobs, government would experience decreased demand for spending.
If all who want jobs, had jobs, government would experience increased levels of revenue.
Tinkering with stimulus spending and Tax Code manipulation will not make companies hire new workers. Only increased sales demand will make companies hire. The consumer will not offer such increased demand until unemployment numbers drop. As long as we continue to see negative employment data, no consumer will EVER feel confident in making any big-ticket purchases.
The sun of our marketplace is at an impasse, slowly dying. Politicians of BOTH parties are on different planets, focusing on fighting against the effects of the impasse. Neither side is focused on resolving the actual cause of the problem. Our nation has an employment problem. The end result of refusing to focus on resolving the impasse itself will truly be a global economic meltdown.
