Mr. Ramsey, while not saying anything disparaging about President Obama, gives what can only be described as a backhanded compliment by saying "I think the President's a great orator." I translate that, basically, to "he talks a good game," and I would say he definitely does that. But Mr. Ramsey, in a very unsurprising turn (for those who know him), doesn't really care for the jobs plan itself.
Some of my favorite quotes from Mr. Ramsey:
- "I resist the tax code telling me how to behave."
- "A $4000 tax credit is not gonna cause me to hire people that I gotta pay for the next five or ten years."
- "Government's role is...to push the taxes back from the edges...so that, as the owner of the business, I have more money; then I can hire people."
* It should be obvious even to the occasional reader of this blog which of the "American Jobs Acts" I prefer.
