Your simple plan simply wouldn't work. A legislator working under those incentives would ration out job creation, delaying government hiring and projects if jobs were already set to increase in a given month. They would raise taxes however much it took to ensure that the deficit decreased. They would create make-work jobs when actual unemployment was rising. Simplistic standards for job performance lead to "legislating to the test". You end up getting the letter of what you asked for, without the substance.

Doug: The flaw in your reasoning is that a legislator doing what you suggest would soon find that jobs would decrease as well as tax revenues. He'd be shooting his incentive program in the foot.

Where in the Constitution does it say anything about the Federal Government being responsible for creating jobs?

I'd revert to what Madison said...NO subsidies period , whether it's to corporations, farm interests or people who should be working but won't. “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” We are being bled to death and it's ALL unconstitutional.

The t-party crew walked into a church and killed a doctor because they like what he was doing. That was in Wichita,KS. The t-party does want to dismantle our government. They don't want women to have any rights. M. Bachmann said you should be submissive and do whatever they want you to do. They want rich white men & women to take over the country. They don't...
