Unemployed Soldiers

One reason Obama is reluctant to wind down the Afghan and Iraq wars is that the returning soldiers will be unemployed. Here is a suggested. Take the money saved from the wars and offer American business to pay 50% of the wages of each new job they create. America will lose the military jobs but create at least three times as many civilian ones, which will have much better spin offs since the spending will be in the USA rather than the middle east.
