Is This Alice In Wonderland??

Everyone, and I mean everyone, agrees that 65%-70% of all new jobs are created by small businesses. That has been true for over 40 years.

Now everyone also seems to agree that creating new jobs is the most important task facing this country.

So today, Obama convenes a meeting with twenty business people to talk about how to create new jobs. And who was in that meeting? The CEOs of ............

General Electric
American Express
and fifteen other huge corporations. (I can't yet find a complete list.)

Understand that I have the highest possible regard for these people. I bought GE stock completely because Jeff Immelt is the CEO. Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsCo, is an amazing leader who is changing the direction of a company with $60 Billion in sales.

But these are not the companies that create new jobs!!

What is it that I do not understand?? Have we all fallen through the Rabbit Hole?

Is there nobody in Washington to tell him the truth? Or does he just not care?

This is getting really crazy. And scary.
