Think we’d be better off if government was run like a business? Think again!

The conservative mantra that government should emulate corporate America doesn’t make as much sense (or cents) as it might seem, as we see HERE.

  1. Here is a businessman’s perspective on why the government is impeding economic recovery.

    A SHORT excerpt from

    “Why I’m Not Hiring
    When you add it all up, it costs $74,000 to put $44,000 in Sally’s pocket and to give her $12,000 in benefits.”

    And even if the economic outlook were more encouraging, increasing revenues is always uncertain and expensive. As much as I might want to hire new salespeople, engineers and marketing staff in an effort to grow, I would be increasing my company’s vulnerability to government decisions to raise taxes, to policies that make health insurance more expensive, and to the difficulties of this economic environment.

    A life in business is filled with uncertainties, but I can be quite sure that every time I hire someone my obligations to the government go up. From where I sit, the government’s message is unmistakable: Creating a new job carries a punishing price.
