We need to do more than just reduce taxes on business. We need to create some comfort and consistency that they will remain low. Nobody is likely to make long term commitments when they are concerned that tax and regulatory policies can radically change every two to four years. The extreme actions of the Democrats in control have severely hindered our recovery; but counter measures from the Republicans, even if economically correct, will not restore the confidence that is needed without some political unity to create the conditions to keep the business environment receptive. This requires a change in more than political parties; this requires a change in political culture. This is a much more difficult change to make.
