••• Wow! Economists just discovered something that most of us already knew!!!! The title of the latest HuffPost article says it all:
Republican Jobs Bills Won't Actually Create Jobs, Say Economists
...economists told The Huffington Post that regulation has had a minimal impact on the unemployment rate. Their claim is backed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which shows that just under 16,000 jobs, or 0.4 percent, were lost because of "government regulations/intervention."
"It's just hard to believe that the paperwork requirements to starting a business represent a major impediment to starting businesses right now," Burtless said. "That's not why we had lots more business creation in the late '90s."
Joel Prakken, chairman of Macroeconomic Advisers, warned that any potential job creation from environmental deregulation could be offset by health concerns.....
No matter how much the Republicans say they've done something to create jobs, you can now throw back this information--- The Republican plan to create jobs is nothing more than a bunch of plain, ordinary, b*******. The GOP drum beat for more tax cuts for the rich has never worked and never will.
The next time you hear Republican Rep. Steve Stivers or Republican candidate, Josh "I'd rather be campaigning than doing my job" Mandel, talk about the Republican jobs plan or ending regulations, you can shout back at them with the information that regulations don't kill jobs---regulations save lives.
