Employers have more money to re-invest in their business when they are losing less money in taxes. Lower corporate and income taxes = job creation.

Productivity should not be punished through taxation. Eliminate the progressive income tax, and replace it with a State and/or National sales tax. How much money would be saved by the government by eliminating the IRS buraecracy? Individuals could no longer ever fall into debt with their own government.

Also, it is easier to lower corporate and income taxes when then government wastes less money on pork and government-dependence producing entitlements.

Lower corporate and income taxes = job creation.

Strickland's support for Hillary Clinton will undo anything he accomplishes at the state level.

Remember, it was the Clinton Administration that gave us NAFTA.

Enough said.

Sorry mate. Clinton signed NAFTA on September 14, 1993. Check your facts.

Bush the father started and signed NAFTA and it went into effect in 1993, which he thought would be his second term. Didn't work out that way. As far as Clinton, he did nothing to stop it because all politicians want a global economy. There is nothing wrong with a global economy as long as the USA comes out on top. But under the current Bush all the has happen is that China with half of the worlds population has become such an economic power that the USA has to bower money from them. Those are the facts.

U.S. President George H. W. Bush signed the NAFTA Treaty with the 2 other North American nations in December 1992, subject to ratification by the legislatures of the three countries. In the United States, NAFTA was able to secure passage after Bill Clinton made its passage a major legislative priority in 1993. The U.S. House passed NAFTA on November 17, 1993 (during the Clinton Term). Clinton then signed the legilation into law.

In short, Bush 41 signed the treaty, Clinton 42 signed the legislation.

Free trade agreements are a major desire of the Republicans since it's their buddies in business who will benefit mainly from lower labor costs. Yes, Clinton signed the legislation. Who signed CAFTA? GATT? Free trade agreements are not the death knell for US jobs. But, these agreements need to be FAIR and not just free. They are not fair as currently negotiated. Then, there needs to be safety nets in place for people who are displaced by the free trade agreements. The non-socialist is a moron who thinks anything liberal and democrat is bad.
