Expectations Growing for Obama’s Make or Break Jobs Speech - Page 2

Americans are fearful that all the politics of a Presidential election year will run out the clock, making it impossible for both parties to work together to arrive at a solution. That is a mistake this nation cannot afford.
Governors all across America are trying to bring jobs into their state from wherever they can be found. The best thing the Obama administration can do is to stay out of the way and allow the states to create jobs the way they want to, and let the free markets work. Stimulus 2.0 is the last thing many governors want to hear from this President tomorrow night.
In fact, it is doubtful the word "stimulus" will be mentioned even once during the President's speech. The failure of the first stimulus package has made it unlikely that any Democrat will mention the word "stimulus" anytime between now and the 2012 elections.
Both parties have made mistakes. The national debt doesn’t belong to a single party. It belongs to both Democrats and Republicans. What’s lacking is a strategy for an immediate and long term plan to bring jobs to America.
Taxpayers are tapped-out; they are paying enough right now. Corporate tax rates are already too high, potentially hurting America's ability to bring new jobs into this country. For corporations who pay no taxes, close the tax loop holes. But, under no circumsances should Congress increase taxes on corporations. Leave them alone, remove the burdensome regulations, repeal Obamacare, and unleash the power of American Exceptionalism.
The stakes for the future of this country could not be higher. The President has raised the bar by calling for a Presidential address before a joint session of Congress. Let's hope he delivers a bi-partisan solution.
