As we ponder the questions in this year's Presidential election, perhaps the main question is this: "Which is more important - providing private equity and profits to a few company shareholders, OR providing jobs to unemployed Americans?"
Supporters of presidential wannabe Mitt Romney say that it is the job of government to provide what is needed - i.e. tax cuts, subsidies, loopholes - to those he calls "job-creators" ... President Obama's view is that insuring eternal profits, equity, tax breaks, and tax shelters for a handful of corporate entities will NOT provide jobs or stability for the majority of Americans who are not in the top 20% of money earners ... Putting it another way: "Do the so-called 'job-creators' really create jobs, or (like Bain Capital & other 'vulture capitalist' equity firms) are they just putting themselves in a better position to 'take the money and run', leaving downsized and outsourced workers holding the empty bag?"
