Joe Echevarria: Washington Needs to Get Its Act Together

Deloitte CEO Joe Echevarria is confident in his firm's ability to create jobs. He told CNBC that the Green Dot will hire another 17,000 new employees next year (netting "about half of that"). The reason that other, lesser, CEOs aren't kicking ass and taking names is that they can't deal with all the uncertainty out there and Joe E. knows exactly who is at fault here:

“Washington, for starters, is going to have to move away from a stalemate, eliminate uncertainty, deal with regulation and create some certainty for us in business so we can invest and lend.” That will require both political parties to work more closely together on solutions, Echevarria said. "Until we move from ideology to bipartisan, we won't get forward in America. Job creation and the economy are bipartisan issues. There should be some solutions for those." 
Or just keep bickering. Whatever.
