Regulation: Not the job killer GOP says

New York (CNNMoney) - Want to help the economy and create jobs? Well, roll back those government regulations! It's a talking point trumpeted by nearly every Republican politician. But would less regulation really spur hiring?

The story goes like this: Thanks to the Obama administration, a wave of new government regulations are strangling business to the detriment of hiring and economic growth.

    Good luck trying to get the sheep to listen to REAL analysis. The blathering candidates will continue to spout the falsehood (even with a conservative orginization refudiating it) until they are blue in the face, not wanting to offend their corporate donors and their millions of dollars in support.

    I am not surprised that republicans are once again, WRONG. For 30 years, they have been on the wrong side of every issue that would help Americans.

    Imaginine that! The GOPeeing Teahadists lying again.
    Look, the ONLY piece of truth that we've heard from the To Hell with the Country Party is that they want President Obama to fail. If that means that the country fails by association, believe you me, they are fine and dandy with that.
    Please stop acting like you don't know any better.

    Republicans need to apologize to the American people for GOP stupidity.

    It goes without saying that many regulations protect consumers. However regulations have a cost, they always do. That cost incurred by the company, manufacturer, service, etc will affect the bottom line. It will be compensated for either by reduction if force, passed along to the consumer, or both. If you lesson the cost of implementing regulations, it will put more money into the company for growth.

    Deregulation will not bring the manufacturing jobs back unless the American people are willing to work for 10cents an hour without breaks or benefits. Thats what the people who they gave those jobs to are working for, its called starvation wages, they pay them just enough money so they can buy just enough rice to have just enough energy to sew your designer hand bag. Its not taxes and regulation that is stopping them from hiring Americans, its pure greed.

    Yet another GOP obstructionist ploy debunked! Continue to derail the Party of NO talking points one by one and their position to bring America to its knees will be completely revealed! Free trade agreements + deregulation + lower taxes + cut spending = NO NEW JOBS!!!
    The lines will be most clearly drawn for 2012! Hope the GOP have their resumes ready, the market is getting tougher to find a job in . . . and the DO NOTHING CONGRESS will be to blame!!

    Told you so. There are even studies out there that predate this story and which CNN and the MSM are ignoring that show regulatory frameworks actually create jobs and often enough to counterbalance or exceed the number of jobs that might have been lost as a result of the regulation. The GOP is just spouting ideology because it sounds nice, but all it amounts to at this point is angry, foot stomping, temper tantrum whining over reality's refusal to obey said ideology....well, that and application thereof leads to the enrichment of the plutocratic puppetmasters the GOP truly serves.

    Some day, a republican will retire on social security, subscribe to medicare, medicaid, and will be living on a fixed income around $10,000. If they pay rent, utilities (federal tax), food, medicare supplement, medicine, there will be no money left. Knowing that, republicans want to tax them so they will have to make a choice of medicine or food. Their best bet is to go to jail for tax evasion, where they will get free food and health care.
