Phaedrus: Businesses don't hire for the sake of hiring, they hire because there's an increased demand for their products, and that only happens when you put more money in the pockets of consumers, not in the pockets of multinational corporations. That's just basic economics. GOP policies have failed again and again and again, and yet for some reason we keep going back to them because they always throw us some crumbs and sell idiots on their lies and sophistry. If you're going to pursue tax cuts that increase the deficit, at the very least give the bulk of them to consumers. To do otherwise ignores basic economics, history, logic, and reality.
