Job creation in the private sector is stalling because of the policies put in place by the Progressives. Businessmen know that as long as the Progressives—with their anti-capitalist, class-warfare ideology—are in power the government will confiscate a large share of the fruits of their corporate endeavors; money that would otherwise be plowed back into the businesses creating jobs. All this is lost on the Progressives in Congress who persist on trying to direct the economy using the tax code and massive spending programs.
What we need now more than before is over the next two years for the GOP to step up and counter the Progressives' anti-capitalist demagoguery with clarity, extolling the virtues of a market-driven private sector with its ability to create wealth and prosperity for all levels of society. The Progressives have been repeating their message over and over. It's time for GOP to do the same.
