Call congressman Lee Terry and ask what jobs are being created in the new Jobs Act.
Seriously call and ask - (202) 225-4155
This bill is being touted as "job creation" by the republicans and is getting passed by both democrats and republicans. This bill is actually just redefining terms and deregulating aspects of the financial industry and changing aspects of investing. This bill does not even create a single job. So ask Lee Terry what job is being created in the jobs act. Stop the fraud!
The government can not create jobs unless they hire government employees or they sponsor projects with money, like building roads, schools, guns, tanks, bombs, etc... That is the only way they can create jobs. Tax breaks for billionaires and deregulation are not the same as creating jobs.
"Once again the 'bipartisan' consensus in Washington, fueled by an intoxicating brew of conventional wisdom laced with campaign cash, has repealed some of those 'cumbersome regulations' that do nothing of value - nothing, that is, except prevent catastrophes. There will be celebrating on both sides of the aisle when the President signs this bill.
And when disaster strikes a few years from now, as it inevitably will, they'll all say "Nobody could have seen it coming." - http://www.nationofchange.org/dumbest-bipartisan-move-repealing-glass-steagall-1332569940
