In response to DamainAllen's comment:
So the free market capitalists who largely made up the bulk of the Council are now Statists? The right likes to push this story, but again the council was advisory. Where is the criticism for the do nothing congress, that has spent more time obstructing in the senate and revolting against everything in the house? The leigislative body has the power here and they have obviously decided that doing nothing is better than doing something lest Obama be perceived as winning.
Lol, you guys, your derangement syndrone has metastasized into full blown lunancy.
These guys were not free maerket capitalists, at least in ideology. Immelt praised the central planning of China, and waxed nostalgically why we simply couldn't do the saem, you know, government set industry production quatas and the like.
Big business is disapointingly statist, not free market. They all depend on government infulence as part of their competitive strength. this is why they have lobbyists, contribute so heavily to whoever is likely to hold power, irregardless of party.
As far as Obama's job council, mostly statists, all big business, with a sprinkling of unions and theoriticians. Small business, which does most of the hiring, not really represented. I found one person who is probably considered a small business owner. Here's the list of members:
So, what do we get for solutions from this grand advisory council? Grand platitudes about creating opportunity, in other words, raise taxes. But, what do you expect from a bunch of swells who don't have to worry where the next meal is coming from?
