In an interview this morning with Fox News, Rep. Woolsey talked up the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ (CPC) alternative to Pres. Obama’s jobs plan. She explained that the CPC supports the president’s plan but just wants it to be a lot more encompassing. In other words: spend, spend, spend money we don’t have to “create” jobs through government bureaucracy.
Not a word about how to actually, practically create jobs. Just that they are needed right now and here. Yes, Rep. Woolsey, Sonoma County does have at least 10% unemployment, and we do need to get our economy moving and more jobs created. But as usual you ignore the private sector and think the only engine available is the government. And that is bass-ackwards!
Jobs will be created again by the private sector (where they should be) when the government (at all levels) ceases to interfere so much and confidence is restored.
I hope this county will elect representatives (2) to the House next year who understand economics far better than does either Rep. Woolsey or Pres. Obama!
