He's Made It Worse: President's Policies Discourage Job Creation

With unemployment over 8 percent, the number one priority should be creating jobs. Unfortunately, the president has chosen to adopt policies that discourage private-sector job creation and burden American businesses. A crushing national debt, onerous government regulations, and the constant threat of tax increases are not measures designed to instill confidence in businesses and encourage them to create jobs. Senate Republicans are committed to reforming the tax code, eliminating job-killing regulations, and increasing American energy security to create an environment in which private-sector job creation can flourish.
