To a point, I agree. However, if the economy is really great or really bad it does not matter what the government does with the tax rate. A business person is not going to hire someone if there is no demand and they are going to hire someone no matter what if the demand is high enough. Tax rate is a factor, but it is not the end all answer that many believe it to be.
