Never in the history of our nation has anyone been able to count on things staying the same for more than a few months at a time.
It's an impossibility given the nature of our government -- and it's a bull**** excuse the R's a using to try to shore up the utter fail that is trickle down policy.
The only way capital will be expended is if people think there will be an ROI, and in order for there to be an ROI there has to be demand for a good or product.
