- One point we can all agree on is that jobs are the cornerstone to any sort of meaningful recovery. If that's the case, why not incentivize business to hire? Why not give a tax break to the people who can actually create a change? If I were to pay less in taxes, I would invest that into the business. It would go to hire more talented people. They'll produce more, create more, and generate more income." -- Clint Greenleaf, www.inc.com/by-the-book
