So exactly - WHERE ARE THESE JOBS - because millions of Americans are out of work, collecting un-employment & we have the highest number of people in our history on food stamps. As well, holiday sales were below .7 %, which is below 1.% percent - that's not saying that the economy is re-bounding! That's saying people are scared and now spending!
As of January 1st - with the passing of the "fiscal cliff" - 70%+ of Americans will see higher taxes, along with a higher payroll tax. That means, that the majority of Americans will be paying "higher" taxes from now on. And - that doesn't include paying additional taxes due to Obamacare!!!!!!
Remember, there are "always" consequences for who you elect! Enjoy those higher taxes.
