Open Letter

Chamber of Commerce Offers Job Ideas

The Chamber of Commerce has offered an open letter to the Obama administration offering its ideas to create more jobs. The message coincides with the group’s “Jobs Summit” going on now in Washington. Not deviating from its conservatism, the chamber says the best way to make more jobs is to cut corporate income taxes, cut taxes on wealthy people, deregulate business, and have more free trade. It wants the Bush tax cuts made permanent but also calls for cutting the deficit. The chamber says Social Security is to blame for our massive debt and wants U.S. infrastructure to be opened up to private investment.
