Sweden, often held up by “progressives” as a model of socialism’s efficiency has collectively come to realize the error of it’s ways and is employing a radical tact to stimulate job growth.
Sweden’s centre-right government on Saturday announced income tax cuts…to stimulate the job market, its primary objective.
[needle scratching on Abba record]
Income tax cuts! To stimulate the job market?!!!
Back here in the U.S.S.A, Obama would be focused on bolstering the job market too if it weren’t for his Magical Mystery Tour promoting health care reform that most of America doesn’t want or need, and the government can’t afford.
The proposal, to be presented to parliament on Monday as part of the 2010 budget bill, is the fourth leg of a tax cut programme introduced in January 2007 to stimulate employment.
Tax cuts stimulate employment? Really? I wonder why Obama and his
stooges uber-czars haven’t thought of that (you know, cutting taxes for those that are in a position to hire employees, versus cutting taxes for those that don’t pay them)?
“The coalition government has agreed on reforms for jobs and entrepreneurialism that will increase employment in the long-term. It has to be more profitable to work and more companies should be able to hire employees,” the government said.
Companies hire employees in Sweden? Naw, really? Here in America, under the Obama administration, the government hires employees. Are we missing something?
Since coming to power in late 2006, the government has launched a series of measures aimed at inciting Swedes to return to the job market instead of living off of state subsidies.
But that would require effort. Here in America we are sustained by Hope® and Change®.
The government said it would also propose a series of measures in the budget bill aimed at boosting incentives to start companies and improve the business climate.
Seriously, somebody should text TheOneWhoWon this innovative idea.
