How's this for raising revenue? Have the government create a job friendly atmosphere for private sector jobs and allow the private sector to create jobs. More people working means more tax dollars. More tax dollars IS more revenue. Also, as a side benefit, there would be fewer people on unemployment. That means less revenue spent supporting them and more revenue to use other places - like reducing the debt? Oh, I forget, we're talking about the Beltway crowd - Republicans and Democrats. Logic is forbidden.

The private sector can die, for all they care... unless you mean the private sector propped up by taxpayer dollars, like Solyndra.

No, Polly, I mean a real environment for private sector jobs. This would include, but not limited to, lower business tax rates (preferably a flat tax, not graduated) and fewer and livable regulations. Let the free market be free.

Yes, there should be no special tax breaks fro corporate America, since regressive and job-killing taxes shouldn't exist anyway.

One big difference in China from in the U.S. China's government wants to PRODUCE goods and services. Yes, they don't worry too much about the air and water; maybe they will when they become as rich as the U.S. used to be.

Good news everyone: Jobless claims on a weekly basis fell to a five-year low according to the Labor Department.

Bad news everyone: Yet still more people remain jobless.

And why is that? Because Obama doesn’t care about jobs.

When you reckon out the newest jobless figures using the Obama’s best calculus, the weekly decline doesn’t mean that fewer people are unemployed.

That would be asking way too much from an administration that seems phobic about private-sector job creation.

“Applications for jobless benefits decreased by 37,000 to 335,000 in the week ended Jan. 12, the lowest level since the period ended Jan....
