35. I'd like someone to explain how rich people "make jobs" when they get richer
Edited on Wed Jul-14-10 05:57 PM by Canuckistanian
Rich people don't hire because they have more money in their pocket. They hire because their businesses are doing well.

These RWers make it sound as if rich people are paying us all out of their pockets. And if the rich don't get their tax breaks, they won't feel so generous any more.

Besides the rich don't start businesses with their OWN money, they BORROW it - from banks. And right now the banks ain't lending, DESPITE the bailouts.

If the RWers are SO concerned about jobs, then they should be demanding that the banks start lending again. But they won't.
