Responses From Our Leaders!

In recent years I contacted many elected leaders asking them to take action to introduce tax and other incentives that would help private sector businesses expand industries and JOBS IN AMERICA.

Some elected leaders tell me they feel that introducing a jobs bill would take away the time they need to serve their constituents. Some feel the JOBS issues must be presented by the leadership of the United States House and Senate. Some feel that our supporters should be urging private sector business leaders to present plans to national leaders to create jobs in return for long-term tax reductions. Some tell me if they give tax incentives to attract jobs to one business, others will want the same. Some tell me that leadership in Washington is moving on the JOBS issue, while others tell me I should consider that the unemployment rate has dropped so job opportunities are improving in America.

Unfortunately, none of the responses I receive reflect real leadership from individuals elected and paid by the taxpayers to represent us in public office. Quite frankly we need 23 million full time jobs and 17 million part-time jobs before the job situation in America is where it should be. From what I see, government got too big and is constantly in need of finding ways to fund itself. That means our elected leaders look for ways to tax Americans to maintain government services, instead of seeking ways to help industries grow and allow people to find jobs to support themselves.

When you consider the stress placed on America's businesses with rising operational costs, taxes, health care and regulations, you can understand why job growth and business growth is not where it should be. Contact your elected officials and ask them what they are doing to help private sector businesses to maintain and restore JOBS in America. I'm sure they will be pleased to hear from you. Let me know how you make out.
