Senator Boxer, in a political ad, says, “I want to see the words ‘Made in America’ again.”
Amen! Don’t we all?
But frankly, Senator Boxer and other like-minded politicians (like our district’s Lynn Woolsey) are more wedded to big government than to private sector solutions and therefore are not the ideal people to make “Made in America” proliferate again. We need to send to Congress men and women who will reduce regulation on entrepreneurship here in the U.S. and who will foster conditions here again for “insourcing” to domestic plants rather than “outsourcing” our jobs to China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mexico, etc.
“Red-tape man” just below is a vivid symbol of the strictures that government has put on business.
And Mark B. Rasmussen explains in more detail The Government War on Small Business. As he plainly points out: “The government DOES NOT “create” productive, value added, sustainable “jobs’, Small Business does.” One would think a sensible government would try very hard to leave alone a superior employment engine, but alas. Just this year, two huge pieces of new legislation, ObamaCare and the “financial reform bill” has magnified the pressures of regulations compliance for small business. More paperwork, more money are being pressed out of our jobs engines by the express will of Congress and the president.
I don’t have to tell you that both Rep. Woolsey and Sen. Boxer voted for ObamaCare and for the “financial reform bill.” It’s time for a new U.S. senator from California and it’s time for a new member of Congress from the 6th District. No question about it.
