Unemployment rates have soared - what are the political parties solutions?

Because they see it as giving money to Bush to make more bombs and weapons to invade more foreign countries... More

Yes, they "soared" to a point lower than it was during the entire Clinton Administration. It is NOT the government's job to make sure that you have a job. Why don't you try reading the Constitution?

our company is not hiring to replace someone who left for another job until after the election because depending on wether or not our small company continues to recieve tax breaks will determine wether any one gets hired or if some one else has to be let go.

The unemployment rate soared due to the hike in the minimum wage. The only way to counter that is to offer tax breaks to businesses who now can't afford to pay their minimum wage-earners.
