    The Overblown Rhetoric Politically Expedient Misleadingly Named Not Job Saving or Creating Act of 2011

    The Overblown Rhetoric Politically Expedient Misleadingly Named Not Job Saving or Creating Act of 2011

    The naming of legislative bills is getting out of hand.

    Instead of Stimulus V (or whatever we are up to), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (Dem-Ill) has introduced the Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act, which she announced on Twitter:

    I doubt the Act will save anyone’s American Dream, because creating incentives to hire the unemployed doesn’t create jobs. It just shifts around who will get a particular job.

    It’s a perverse version of the “jobs saved and created.” You deprive an employed person of the job, which would have created a job opening anyway in the position the person vacated. So no net new jobs.

    All it will do is cost us money, which we are not entitled to keep anyway.

    Their wonderful incentive to give employers a tax break for hiring new employees doesn’t take in the fact that hiring employees is a long time venture not just for one year. Employers will still be responsible for the costs of that employee for years to come. Libs never seem to understand this. Like when they offered the states incentives to implement their policies for one year but after that the states had to foot the bill. Do the libs really think these things are good ideas or good solutions or do they think we are too stupid to understand the risks?
