Energy "programs", i.e. drill, baby, drill. That's government getting out of the way.
Lowering corporate taxes is gettign government out of the way.
Tariffs won't help. It will drive cost up locally, driving demand down.
Look, government has never has created jobs, government jobs aside. We are talking about private sector jobs, right?
In order for government to create a job, it would have to be an owner/decision maker for that job. Throwing around buckets of money, raising/lowering regulations and taxes, all things that impact those who create jobs, but none of this creates a private sector job. Demand creates private sector jobs.
The only thing government can do is limit job creation by raising taxes, tariffs, or regulations.
