A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

The governor of New York must’ve been watching House of Cards since he tried to create his own America Works like job program. HotAir.com reports that Governor Cuomo spent $53 million on his StartUp NYC program that would provide thousands of jobs and tax-free opportunities to tech and manufacturing companies if they worked with universities and colleges in the state. So far the program has created just 76 jobs. The excuses for why this government program hasn’t worked, now those may number in the thousands. If he really wanted to create jobs, he’d cut regulation, lower taxes and let the private sector do what they do best, which is create jobs. Another government program failure and millions of dollars wasted.
