The only “jobs” bill that will have any value is pulling back the last 4 years of overregulation (Dodd-Frank)and job-suppressing burdens (i.e. the PPACA) levied on private industry and cutting the corporate tax rate for repatriation. If you want to empower the private sector to build jobs, you don’t discourage that job building, and you don’t add more baseline expense to business. You have to encourage that growth by making it profitable and have certainty. The problem with Congress since the PPACA was even concocted is that the private sector is unsure of what the government is going to do to them next. So they are sitting idle instead of taking risks to expand business. Take what I have now instead of risking more and only being punished for that risk. There’s no reward any more, so why should they? Because some bureaucrat says so? I don’t think so.
