Jobs, Not Taxes

Here’s my response to Governor Jerry Brown’s State of the State address:

“I agree with the Governor that we must do more to spur job creation and investment in our state. Unfortunately, by pushing higher taxes, the Governor sends the entirely wrong message. We don’t need higher taxes, we need more private sector jobs.

“Despite some modest job growth, more than two million Californians remain unemployed. Rather than drive more job creators and wage earners away from our state, we should be doing everything in our power to help them stay here and succeed.

“When Californians have jobs, the state always has plenty of revenue. The Governor should be campaigning for jobs, not higher taxes.”

    You hear daily about who is making soup for the poor etc…..could someone report on some job growth…we gotta have some!

    Being from Pittsburgh, Regan era….hundreds of thousands of jobs were lost along the Three Rivers….we didn’t change the town’s name to PITYSBURGH…citizens and companies cleared the brown sites, sucked it up and took low paying jobs with marginal benefits….got educated in skills of the future…look at Pittsburgh…. the positive image, grit and tenacity rising from the ash heaps of the industrial revolution era.

    Ye in the political class…no more pity parties please!!!”
