"... the fastest, most effective way to create new jobs is to cut taxes and implement regulatory policies that create and retain jobs while encouraging economic investment."

I disagree, and so do most economists. Creating new jobs is not done by cutting the sales tax.

Growing jobs is accomplished through strategic investments in infrastructure and providing corporate incentives.

For example, Cook County's sales tax rate was just increased to 10.25%, with growing jobs and population. They just landed Boeing and MillerCoors! Chicago's certainly not the tax island you think Milw would be with a minor increase in the sales tax.
