Richard Carmona on Budget & Economy
"We don't want to raise taxes now because that'll push us further into a recession, but we need to start generating some income," Carmona added.
A: We need to rebuild our engine of economic opportunity not just because it's the right thing to do, but because America is at its strongest when it is powered by a vibrant middle class. We need to strengthen and restore our housing and construction industries by resolving the foreclosure crisis and helping homeowners who remain underwater. But just as importantly, we need to build sustainable growth sectors in Arizona--ensuring that future investments are geared toward creating jobs for the long term, not just paper profits for speculators to flip. We need to refocus on technology and alternative energy.
