neither will have a great deal of an impact. raising it at this point will cause a little job lose to the small and mid sized business with high labor cost. Dropping it might add just a couple of part time jobs in the same areas. reducing the fed, state and local fees, regs and taxes for a set period of time more then 3 years, would have the biggest impact at the local levels.
