With 21 months of unprecedented government growth rammed through Congress without so much as the time it takes to read the multiple 2000-plus page bills, it’s nice to see that we can take some comfort in the fact that the insanity has, at least temporarily, subsided as one house of Congress in now safely in the hands of the Republicans.
Indeed, now the real economic recovery can begin. For one, businesses, whether big or small, instinctively retreat in the face of uncertainty, especially when it comes to government regulation. Many employers didn’t hire because of the possibility of higher taxes, greater regulation or additional healthcare obligations – all of which came true. Now, however, we have at least some modicum of stability on the horizon, so maybe, just maybe, we can see some real growth in employment.
I think it’s all time for us to gather round and sing to the tune of Dr. Seuss’ “Welcome, Christmas,”
Congress now is in our grasp
So now ends our collective gasp
