  •  Well my POV... (6+ / 0-)

    in terms of hiring decisions, the vast majority of business owners could care less about the political power in washington when making hiring decisions, now they may consider the macoreconomic impact of policies in washington on the economics of expanding a business or they may be less bullish on the future when a Democrat is in the Whitehouse...

    But if the business is there...they will hire regardless of political implications...because it is more about money than politics...

      Bypass corporations and do direct job creation.  I'm kind of tired of hearing all the excuses for why we can't do this.
