wrestlervic saidI'm wondering if some of these large companies, who don't want regulation or lose tax credits for shipping jobs overseas, are purposely waiting to get Mitt into office so the republicans can claim job growth.
Also, do the job number reports add up all the jobs created overseas by U.S.-based companies? That would be interesting to know.
Corporations are profit driven. If they need employees to fill a gap. They do it.
To not do so means you miss opportunity and risk the business. In a big economy like the US even if 10% of the companies got together to collude in a scheme to hurt jobs. Other companies would come along and take advantage of it.
wtrestlervic this is not addressed at you perse. But Liberals in general misunderstand free markets. In a understandable way they project their own philosophy about behavior onto how free markets. Attributing the current situation of extra CASH ON HAND that corporations are sitting on as a scheme to make Obama look bad.
If the corporations could turn 100million dollars into 100billion dollars by investing/hiring they would do it . Its not about Obama , its about the current climate being uncertain.
And in a nutshell this is what the whole election is about. Philosophy. Obama and progressives have a different way at looking at the world , they have a paranoid attitude towards corporations because most of them never ran a business .
A friend said "well arent Corporations people now? why dont we hold them accountable for sitting on cash ( through taxes) for not hiring".
I understand his argument after the Supreme Court case . But it boils down to what kind of country do you want to live in.
