Do you think Employers will create more jobs if the Republicans cut their personal income taxes?

Or is the Employer only likely to create new jobs when a genuine productivity based need for more workers can be demonstrated? Another way of wording this question: are Employers likely to spend their tax cuts on their employees out of the goodness of their hearts, or are they more likely to spend the money on themselves and buy a new car and condo somewhere?

I think the latter. Business only hires people when they need them and that means they're doing more business - selling more services or widgets. When there's no demand for products, they aren't going to hire peolple to sit around and pick their noses... More

What do you do with more money than you can spend? You invest it in your own company, by creating jobs and new industries within your company, or you invest it in other companies, and give them the opportunity to do so. Either way, it makes the economy stronger.

Well the democrats would let you think that the president creates jobs not the employer.

Some will expand their business and some won't.

In either case it perpetuates growth. If the employer keeps the money and buys a new car and condo, that generates work for the people that build the products.

Especially in these times, I wouldn't trust the greed of any man. How many times have you been at any job that is overflowing with business but you were short on staff.

Check the data: under Republicans, every time there is a tax cut, there are massive layoffs. Case closed.

Business managers get bonuses at the end of the year for being under staffed. I worked at a place that was purposely under staffed so the Boss could gloat his fat ugly butt in extra money and didn't care about his employees.

The employers will provide alot of new jobs with their tax cuts because they will want to make even more money. They will do this by expanding their business. This requires more workers.

Employers create more jobs when their CORPORATE taxes are cut, not their personal taxes.

In other times when business were booming, then I might have faith in businesses hiring more people. These days businesses are down, so I don't think with tax cuts, the companies will be hiring more people.

No because employers just end up pocketing it.

Has the trickle down theory EVER worked? Those tax subsidies that are "supposed" to create jobs end up in the pockets of shareholders.

Tax cuts do nothing to create jobs. They only put more money in the pockets of the rich and the super rich. Jobs are created by tax policies that directly benefit companies that are helped to expand and/or invest in new equipment. Giving more money for bigger yachts and multiple homes doesn't do it.

They've had a tax break for the past 8 years.In the past 6 months,over 800,000 jobs have been lost.Does the same continued tax breaks McCain is suggesting still sound like it's going to create jobs to you? I don't think so.
