You have 2 minutes for rebuttal Mr Space

Government does not create jobs;

the role of government is to create

an environment that is conducive

to entrprenuership and to provide

the tools and the resources necessary

to grow the economy. For example,

we need to apply rules much like

those of the Telecommunications Act

of 1937, which dealt with the issue of

bringing telephones to rural areas. In

the same way we need to pursue today's

issues of bringing broadband/high-speed

internet and wireless connectivity to our

region of Ohio as they are no longer

choices but necessities for jobs and

economic development. Other solutions

include assistance to small business

startups, venture capital startups,

reducing regulatory burden, and reforming

the legal system so that American

businesses and workers can remain competitive.
