"The conservative said: "When I become president I will create 5 billion dollars of federal tax revenue when I teach the unemployed how to fish and save the world economy from total collapse.""
The Conservative have a bad habit of having people fish in a pond they know is dead. Listen to them as they call the unemployed lazy. Even as they admit unemployment is over 8?And as was pointed out they will give all the fishing rods to the wealthy anyway. How stupid do you think people are to waste time fishing for what doesn't exist?
Furthermore the Republican approach is hands off. So "no" they don't plan on teaching anyone anything. Just criticize. Starvation, death from simple diseases and ignoring a problem is no solution.
Let's talk about that $5 trillion. Conservatives all stand around with their hands out for endless tax cuts, an overpriced military, free emergency room visits and somehow can't understand why America has a credit downgrade, a massive deficit, weak dollar and 0?nterest.
Has it ever occurred to anyone, private industry never hired the number needed to drive the economy? If they did how come private industry has not absorbed the unemployed workers from the shrinking government? Business is reporting record profits, taxes haven't been this low in decades and there are no significant regulations. So where are the jobs? But there sure as hell is a dead pond. So much for "Trickle down" economics.
