What have business leaders done for America lately?


Say, since about the time they "persuaded" Congress to repeal the Glass-Steagal Act or since they persuaded the Supreme Court to pass the Citizens United ruling?

Or since they crashed Wall Street with their clever financing and almost destroyed the banking system of America, if not for George W Bush and Barack Obama bailing them out, with the assistance of the Fed?

Or since last year, when they created more jobs overseas than they created in America?

Or since they have kept almost all the profits from all the productivity since 1978 and gave very little to the workers that produced the profits?

Or since they have decided to buy their own politicians to get their low tax rates as the country declines before our eyes?

Now, we are asked to put a CEO into the White House, because he knows how to "create jobs". When, in fact, he has more experience at destroying jobs than creating them.

Can you name a few positive things that business leaders have done for America in the last dozen years??

1. good points. this country has went way too long without making the billionaires pay a fair share
instead, they've been taking more and more to the point of absurdity! I worked for many years at a place where millionaires frequent (with the common folk), and they are so amazingly rich that they were treated as royalty! If you pay the premium rates for service, you can do and say what you want, and their children are growing up to be spoiled snobs.

2. I've been trying tro parse that out...thinking and thinking hard about it...
After awhile....I realized I couldn't really think of anything they have done for us.

I don't know what that means, though. :think:
