Another Entry for the Employment-Reducing Policies List

The list of employment-reducing public policies grows yet again:

  • mandating the employers with large payrolls provide health insurance, but that employers with small payrolls do not,
  • means-tested mortgage modification (presenting millions of workers with implicit tax rates in excess of 100% (sic)),
  • means-tested new home buyer credit,
  • mean-tested student loan modification,
  • unemployment insurance extensions,
  • state income tax hikes,
  • IRS means-tested enforcement of prior tax debts,
  • marginal federal tax rate hikes on the "rich"!

A drunker sure doesn't know which drink gets him drunk if he had so many.
