Do we need more proof that bailouts are raw deal? While Chrysler participated in the bailouts they are sitting on a lot of money now having posted strong gains this past quarter. Now as Chrysler financially is on the rise the company is looking to reimburse labor unions, but what about the tax payers - when do we get that money? Moreover, of the money that was loaned to Chrysler as part of the bailout a little over a billion dollars will not be required to be paid back. When did a billion dollars become a rounding error that we just write off? Ed Butowsky, wealth manager, financial advisor, and managing partner of Chapwood Investment Management, joins Fox Business to discuss Chrysler’s move to reimburse labor unions.

Most of Hollywood is in President Obama’s camp, but not former Saturday Night Live star Jon Lovitz. In a recent media recording he rants about his tax burden with Hollywood director Kevin Smith.

Jon Lovitz: If I make a dollar, and out of every dollar, I’m taxed 50, half of 50 cents, I have to give ins’t that like enough?

Kevin Smith: Yes

Jon Lovitz: So for every dollar you make, two dollars, you have to give a dollar back. No, that’s not right. Your not paying enough. It’s Half!

Kevin Smith: Yeah, yeah I got you, I feel you. I pay…

Jon Lovitz: Half! And then they go, ‘well all the rich people have all these deductions.’ Well everyone in this room has the same deductions. You just didn’t know, learn about it. You hae the exact same deductions. Do you drive a car? Did you take it to work? Deducted. Do you eat lunch? Deducted.

Kevin Smith: Hey hey, stop yelling at the 99%.

Jon Lovitz: It’s my club.

Kevin Smith: Yeah but don’t burn it down, man. Occupy Lovitz!

Jon Lovitz: You’re constantly thinking of ways to be creative and make money. What’s wrong with that?

Kevin Smith: Do you know why? Because the government takes half.

Jon Lovitz: That’s right and you had no money growing up, didn’t you?

Kevin Smith: None

Slower Growth Of Labor Force May Hold Back Economy & Job Market

Could the changing nature of the workforce be holding back the economic recovery? The latest employment report shows the US economy adding about 120,000 jobs in the month of March. Some analysts are suggesting that this may be an indication of a slow down in the economy. Furthermore, two researchers from Harvard blame the the weak employment report on demographics. In fact the two researchers point to government statistics showing that the labor force is growing at about half the rate it was 20 years. They conclude that this slow growth will hinder the job market and the economy. Ed Butowsky, wealth manager, financial advisor, and managing partner of Chapwood Investment Management, joins Fox News to examine the report from two researchers pointing to demographics as the reason for the slow employment numbers.
