Business Group’s List Of ‘Job Killers’ To Affect Legislation?

SACRAMENTO (AP) — A California business group’s perennial list of bills it dubs “job killers” once signaled which legislation was unlikely to survive former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto pen.

But Democrats are hoping their package of legislation will fare better under the administration of Gov. Jerry Brown, a fellow Democrat.

The California Chamber of Commerce rolled out its “job killers list” last week ahead of the final week for the state Senate and Assembly to pass their own bills before sending them to the other house.

This year’s roster names 28 proposed laws the business lobbying group says would hurt the state’s economy as it emerges from recession.

Much of the legislation involves environmental regulation and workers’ rights, which Democrats say help working people.

    Too much regulation, taxes, etc. No wonder business move.

    Too much regulation? Really? More like not enough regulation. If there truly was enough regulation, the mortgage mess would not be remotely close to what it is. The government would not have had to buy stakes in GM, Chrysler, Citibank, AIG, Ally Financial… Enough regulation and Chase wouldn’t have taken over WaMu for as little as they did. Best of all, enough regulation and the health insurance companies would not be raising rates at an astronomical 10% per year.

      The mortgage mess was started by Dumocrats who forced banks to loan money to people who had no business buying a home, all in the name of “fairness”. The collapse happened under the nose of Dumocrat Barney Frank who said he had no idea this was about to happen, and yes he’s on record saying it. That’s what too much regulation gets you; government boobs with no common sense. Terry, you speak the party talking points of more government. Like a good little Marxist.

    Terry, you believe what your leaders tell you with no thought process of your own. Too much regulation actually lead to the mortgage mess because of two laws. We are constitutionally guaranteed equal protection under the law and that made mortgage companies treat us in similar ways. Is this a bad law? I do not think so and no one seems to want to challenge that part of our constitution. The second law was forced upon us by Barney Frank. We legislated that banks had to give mortgages to people in bad neighborhoods. They often lived in bad areas because they did not have good jobs. Frank threatened to investigate and close banks that did not give out these very risky mortgages. As soon as high risk no income mortgages came into being the banks gave those with good and bad credit loans that should never have been approved. The mortgage mess followed and we are paying dearly for the regulations. Thanks Mr. Frank for destroying more wealth than any other person in the history of the world

    I have no thought process? You are sorely mistaken there. If I had no thought process I would have believed that there were WMD in Iraq. I would never have questioned the correlation between 9/11 and Iraq. And I certainly wouldn’t have denied all the loans that I did in 2005 & 2006. Regulation had nothing to do with my debuted loans being funded. It was greed that funded those loans. Boss wants a bigger bonus to buy a new Mercedes. Your denial is overridden and the flawed loan approved because Fletcher Jones has the Benz of my dreams.
    Greed overwhelms common sense. It’s regulation that is supposed to keep greed in check.

    If we had a death penalty for wire fraud, a lot of this would stop. If we had a death penalty for stupidity, a lot of this would stop as well.

    death penalty for stupidity? I couldn’t agree more. maybe then people who are quite intelligent will stop acting stupid for social acceptance. social darwinism at its best!

    But Democrats are hoping their package of legislation will will fare better under the administration of Gov. Jerry Brown, a fellow Democrat, and allow them to finally continue their JOB KILLING ways that the former Governor tried to prevent!

    The more laws and regulation, the more democrat brownshirts there will be in the name of enforcement. The bigger the government, the smaller the person. It’s clear the democrat leadership hates the average American.
