Larry, you know Jack Welch who ran GE for 20 years and increased it's value 4000 percent.

Go ask Jack!

Now, if they are bold, House Republicans will take advantage of these dismal numbers. Bold means bold spending cuts, as in cut spending like there’s no tomorrow. Bold means implementing the $1.2 trillion spending sequester. Bold means an absolute rock-solid commitment to spending cuts.
