2. "raising taxes — even on the very wealthy — would do nothing to put Americans to work."
Well giving them generous tax breaks for 10+ years hasnt done shit to help get people off unemployment not to mention the wage stagnation thats been occurring so how about we try another way, tax the shit out of the wealthy and corporations if they are just sitting on money.
For every x amount they invest here in the US though and or with an increase in employees salaries (and not corporate level salaries) in the US they get a x % tax break.
After all we have tried giving them the carrot for free to get them to create jobs and improve the lot for the 99% and thats clearly failed so its time to break out the stick or in this case a 2x4 on their worthless cheap asses.
