Again, I'm lifting direct from www.thismodernworld.com
"The quote is second-hand in the Washington Post here, but the math is right:
"As John Cassidy noted recently in the New Yorker, if you take the president's statements at face value, each new job created by his tax cut would cost the government $550,000 in lost revenue. That, Cassidy noted dryly, is "about 17 times the salary of the average American worker."
Of course, the tax-cut-as-jobs idea is supported by folks who also think the Pentagon really needs the ability to kill the entire human race dozens of times over.
"So at least they're consistent."
Check out this site, "a website that allows you to create maps of the interlocking directories of the top 100 companies in the US in 2001". Some interesting stuff in there. Thanks to Sunit.
Here's a fun one: "No losses for biggest bosses: Thousands get laid off but CEOs still make millions." From the New York Daily News. So yeah, giving these guys more money is obviously the way to strengthen the economy.
