"I am a job creator"

My demand creates jobs. If my wages remain flat and my spending power is diminished, then so is my demand.The president needs to support an ad that distinguishes average, non-business owning Americans as job creators. These folks could state their names and current occupations and then boldly state .."I am a job creator". The ad could use easy to understand facts and stats that show the power of a thriving middle class consumer in our nations economy.

2. Excellent! Use the words of Nick Hanauer.

~snip~

When businesspeople take credit for creating jobs, it is like squirrels taking credit for creating evolution. In fact, itís the other way around.

It is unquestionably true that without entrepreneurs and investors, you canít have a dynamic and growing capitalist economy. But itís equally true that without consumers, you canít have entrepreneurs and investors. And the more we have happy customers with lots of disposable income, the better our businesses will do.

Thatís why our current policies are so upside down. When the American middle class defends a tax system in which the lionís share of benefits accrues to the richest, all in the name of job creation, all that happens is that the rich get richer.

And thatís what has been happening in the U.S. for the last 30 years.

And letís remember that capitalists without customers are out of business.

4. It needs tons of repeating.

Please make me tired of hearing it, it's a truth that needs to become a given, in everyday American's eyes.

7. The GOP message about the rich creating jobs is pure crap. They are

sitting on historic large amounts of cash. If there were demand for products, they would add factories and jobs to make themselves more money. The basic problem is there is insufficient cash in the 99% to produce demand. Nothing will happen until cash is infused. Only ways I know to do it: 1) public works programs, paid for by taxing the rich; 2) govt give-aways to the poor, paid for by taxing the rich; 3) revolution, ultimately paid for by the rich. The rich are playing a dangerous game. Some French might come over here and show us how a real revolution is done, not that fake one ran by the rich in the 1770s.
