Lieberman Pledges to Reverse Job Losses

First came the candidates, like so many locusts, and thence came the campaign promises, and together, anon, they lit upon the land. From Yahoo / AP:

Democrat Joe Lieberman, warning that America is "hemorrhaging manufacturing jobs," promises to reverse the trend as president with tax incentives and tougher trade policies.

Lieberman called President Bush's massive tax cuts a disaster for working Americans and accused some Democrats of dangerous protectionism.

"Rather than thinking we can build walls around our economy, as some Democrats would have us do, I want to build bridges to markets around the world for American-made goods," Lieberman said Friday in a speech to about 20 employees at a high-technology manufacturing company.

Liberman could reverse job losses by getting one.

tax cuts bad

tax hikes good

What kind of idiotic theory is that?

less tax= more money=more growth=more jobs

If the government raised my taxes, all I would do to counter that is fire an employee or two.
