Letters and comments for August 9, 2011

OK, start creating jobs


To the Editor:

OK, “job creators,” you got what you wanted — extension of Bush tax cuts, deficit reduction with no tax reform or enhancements.

You criticized stimulus expenditures to repair physical infrastructure and have cost the federal government millions in lost airline ticket tax revenue through lack of FAA budget approval.

The ball is in your court! It’s well past time to open your stockpiles of cash, and put investing in America and jobs ahead of stock dividends.
