We Can Do Better … If Only DC Will Let Us – Joe Walsh

We Can Do Better … If Only DC Will Let Us



Democrats and big government progressives: you are destroying history’s greatest job-creating machine.

Just 88,000 new jobs were created in March. That’s the lowest amount in nine months. The U.S. economy needs to create 150,000 jobs just to keep up with population growth. We aren’t growing and may well be contracting again.

Our economy — the greatest, freest, most enterprising job creating machine ever invented — can’t get up off its back. It’s on its back because Washington and big government has tied it down like Gulliver with all sorts of regulations, taxes, rules, Obamacare, debt and deficits, uncertainty, fear, hidden costs and fees, punishing court rulings, union interference, and … the list never ends.

The 40-year-old entrepreneur in the Chicago suburbs won’t start a new business because of all the burdensome taxes and regulations. The 50-year-old landscaper is cutting back on employee hours to avoid the new Obamacare regulations. The steel company is holding off on capital investments because Washington is over $16 trillion in debt.

We can do better, but we will never do better until Washington unties Gulliver from all of these regulations, taxes, and debt.

Our elected officials have forgotten that we create jobs out here. Washington, DC, doesn’t create jobs. We had better remember that again … very soon.
