it not only sounds good, it is good.I agree in principal but the fact is - its all about the money and when the country is not helping businesses - they will go elsewhere. I'm not saying its right - invest in US companies and invest in your people -it sounds great and boosts short term moral but if you start getting close to breaking even or loosing money - things get a lot tougher.
There are taxes that aren't necessary - there are regulation that are not based on good science but ----
it might be the difficult thing to do sometimes, but the right thing is not always easy.
i just think that the "lower" paying jobs have not kept up with the cost of living. so when people are subjected to drawing more money by staying home a draining the government, they do that without hesitation. i am not saying that is right, and i wouldn't do it. i have too much pride. but the problem is that these low pay scale jobs have to be increased. but when the top only sees the bottom line, and that i can make a extra buck by cutting this and cutting that...this is the disconnect that i think is the problem. i don't think "trickle down" is the answer. it was a boom in the Reagan era, but if you look close, that was the same time we had a tech boom in this nation's economy. toward the end of the Reagonomics era, the economy was heading downward. "trickle up" works in a down economy, and that means getting money in the hands of the people that buy products...the same products that the upper percent's companies produce...therego this money trickles back up a increases companies profit margins. i have never been a fan of "trickle down" because that's not always money that is trickling down...
