If there’s one thing Donald Trump knows, it’s business.

And no one in Trump’s likely Cabinet knows business better than Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder.

You’ve probably done business with him. Puzder is Chief Executive Officer of CKE Restaurants, which own the Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. fast food restaurant chains.

But he’s also an author. Working with finance professor David Newton, in 2009 Puzder released “Job Creation: How It Really Works and Why Government Doesn’t Understand It.”

It’s only 212 pages long, but all 212 pages burn liberal myths to the ground.

After reading these five quotes from Puzder’s book, you’ll see why President Trump wants him running the Labor Department.

“Picture this stark image, right out of a dark, chilling, Soviet-era propaganda film. Politicians wax seemingly eloquently about their centrally planned remedy for the national economy – a supposedly carefully calculated and measured government program that will decide how many jobs will be created and in what industries the new jobs should be promoted. The only problem is the setting for this policy advance is Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. and the message is coming from our elected officials who swore an oath to ‘uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.’” Pages 69-70

“Stimulus packages don’t create sustainable jobs — only temporary funding for projects linked to the timeline of the funding allocations. When the funding runs out, the projects cease, as do the associated jobs.” Page 74

“It is impossible to create wealth and sustainable economic growth in the economy by going into debt.” Page 74

“We need to completely stop the government’s expanded intrusion into the private sector through taxes and regulations that allow it to then subsidize the person, firms and markets it deems worthy.” Page 153

“…the federal government (must) dramatically reduce its spending across the board, and in many cases eliminate spending in many of the programs that consistently consumed tax resources without any tangible, measurable benefits. It is time to rein in runaway government entitlements, appropriations, subsidies, grants, regulations and those pet projects of Senators and Representatives that are often loaded with additional spending amendments to benefit their home state constituents (and bolster their re-election prospects) or to satisfy special interests and lobbyists” Page 182

    This man is brilliant! I hope Trump has a copy of his book sent to every member of Congress.
    This may require sending someone along to read it to the members seated on the left.

    I wish this article had also pointed out that Government jobs do not produce anything, therefore they do not create wealth, therefore they just leech off the economy. There are actually a bunch of Liberal dingbats who think unemployment is easy to solve by just giving everyone a Government job. These people have no clue how and where the wealth is produced that is then taxed to pay for our ridiculous bloated Government. That is why Trump won the election and why Liberal lefties are so upset. They do not understand how hard Trump had to work to get where he is. Luckily the Majority of Legal citizens in this country do know and voted accordingly.

      An ad covered mine too leecoyne and could not close it nor move it. Tried the highlight ‘trick’ but that didn’t work either. Apparently ads are more important than the article! Grrrrr

    These first few days of Trumps presidency have proven one thing to me; and that is that the democrats of this country only have one thing on their mind. They will not listen to reason because they are brain washed into believing,” Democrat GOOOOD, Republican BAAAAD.” No matter what happens, THEY HATE TRUMP BECAUSE HE IS NOT A DEMOCRAT.. And there is no way on Earth that you can reason with them.
    No matter who says, does or writes anything at all, they will not believe it unless that person is also a democrat.

    For those whom the 1st quote is blocked by the ad (it’s worth reading):
    “Picture this stark image, right out of a dark, chilling, Soviet-era propaganda film.
