U.S. doesn’t need to dabble in socialism

French President Francois Hollande displays the ignorance of a socialist with his economic plan. This genius is offering companies with fewer than 250 employees 2000 euros ($2,200) for each employee hired for a 6-month contract with certain “conditions”. Sounds good until you realize that companies hire only if they get back more than they spend on new employees. This only occurs when the economy grows, creating higher demand for products and services or there is anticipated growth making owners hire ahead to accommodate the projected demand. In my opinion, no one hires until the existing wage earners and payers have more money to spend through less taxation and expense. It’s not happening here and it sure won’t happen in France. Let’s all say together: “look at Greece.” Soon we will be saying “look at France.” The U.S. does not need to experiment with socialism, there are plenty of failures already out there.
