I’m not an extremely political person as I believe that both sides are far too ideological to be truly constructive, but as far as the economy and business goes, I 100% believe that the path we are going has been immensely destructive to economic growth. Jack Welch was CEO of General Electric for 21 years, and is widely regarded as one of the finest executives of the 20th century. To say that his statements regarding bureaucrats fudging the numbers to assist in preserving their positions is ludicrous, and implies serious ignorance in relation to human beings psychological tendencies to act in their self-interests. I believe either side would have done the same thing but let’s not discredit this man’s intellect in defense of what any rationale observer realizes is a ridiculous jobs number that will be revised. One jobs number good or bad wouldn’t impact my decision making but instead there has to be a realization that the economy is priority number one right now, and intense over-regulation and bureaucracy is only serving to stifle growth. Combine that with unaffordable and uneconomic healthcare legislation, which makes it extremely difficult for small business to get their feet off the ground leads me to believe the status quo is a recipe for disaster.
