It’s the Economy, Stupid!

From a purely logical standpoint, what is the correct solution to the economic woes of the United States?

Obviously, change our system, such that any business, worldwide, would be insane not to want to be here.

So, logically speaking, what changes do we need to make, to attract businesses? What would you like to see if you ran a business?

A) Lower taxes, and

B) Ratchet regulatory requirements WAY back, and

C) Eliminate unions, which are parasitical in nature, and

D) Drill here, drill now. Cheap energy is a major requirement for business and you’re not going to get it by buying oil from overseas. And alternate sources are not yet economically viable.

For crying out loud, it isn’t that difficult to figure this out. In short, quit beating the cow to make it give more milk. Oh, and turn down the suction on that milking machine, while you’re at it…

Of course, the Democrats, liberals, and the Obama administration are doing the exact opposite of ALL of these things…

Notes about the items above:

A) Anything that lowers operating costs is a boon to a business.

B) Anything that lowers operating costs is a boon to a business.

C) Anything that lowers operating costs is a boon to a business.

When unions first came into existence, they served a useful purpose – protecting the rights of the worker, enhancing safety standards and working conditions, etc. But they have outlived that purpose; laws have been passed that do those things. Unions now exist as a parasite on the system, existing only to protect their own power and existence.

When the union extorts “bargains” for higher wages and benefits, above the pure capitalist market rate for that worker, they decrease the competitive edge for that business by that amount. A business that has to pay a janitor $28.50 an hour plus benefits is not going to compete well with companies elsewhere that do not.

Of course, no union member – especially the janitor making $28.50 an hour plus benefits – will agree with me. But would you hire somebody to sweep your floor – at those rates?

D) Anything that lowers operating costs is a boon to a business.
