"Everyone keeps saying President Bush needs to create more jobs. I don't know how he can do that if there aren't a lot of companies out there willing to hire people. I don't think there's anything the government can do. Business tax breaks wouldn't be much help for companies that are barely making it. There's no way those tax breaks are going to help them hire people.''
