Liberal economic stupidity

"I sarcastically made a comment that we should peg state and local business taxes on the unemployment rate of the states and counties: the higher the unemployment rate, the higher their taxes. I was joking but the more I think about it the more I like the idea."

- Violent Anti-gunner Southern Beale

Apparently she's also an economic genius! Ah yes, in liberal land those evil businesses just don't feel like hiring. I swear sometimes a liberal will say something so stupid I'm just not sure how to react. How it it that liberals can go through life with such an inability to understand the most simple of concepts, be it gun control, rights, or economics? I mean clearly if businesses aren't hiring in a particular area then raising their taxes is going to stimulate growth and act as an incentive for them to hire, right?

Dude, that'd be great for Texas. We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country!

Taxes do one thing, and they do it quite well - they damage economic growth. And in this time period, with the economic problems we are already having, only a complete moron like SoBeale would want to damage any American economy.

Increasing taxes on companies/states will not magically create jobs - if it did, do you not think we would have successfully employed it by now?

So she likes unemployment numbers?

It was like an argument point during the 2008 election. "So you think the Economy sucks, and your solution is to take more money from people who are struggling?"

Bealie doesn't like unemployment, so her solution is to force buisnesses to relocate offshore....

BTW, I'm citing you for a boycott violation!
