There they go again. But I repeat myself, again. Yesterday Mitt Romney played the well-worn card [looking a whole lot like a Monopoly card] labeled, The Job Creators.
How long can they fool The People?
Apparently the GOP believes: for a very long time.
They may be right.
The People are quite gullible.
The Romney campaign, responding yesterday to President Obama’s suggestion of ending tax cuts for those making over $250,00 said, “The President’s latest bad idea is to raise taxes on families, job creators, and small businesses.” The Obama Campaign said that the President’s low tax rates will apply to 97 % of American tax payers.”
Apparently the GOP worries about [read: hopes to get campaign contributions from] the other 3%. The supposed Job Creators fall into this category. So do the multi-billionaires whose money is, like Romney, safely stashed away in Luxembourg, Switzerland and the Cayman Islands. They have no intentions of ‘creating jobs.’ Yet, the term, Job Creators, sounds so important. So does the idea: just let the job creators keep some tax dollars and they will create more jobs for the American workers. One might ask: if the Bush tax cuts helped the job creators to create jobs, why is the unemployment rate at 8.2%? Or, is that an unfair question?
Here’s another question: what is the market for these jobs? Who’s buying? Who has the extra cash to spend?
The fastest way of ‘growing the economy’ is to get dollars in the hands of the lower 25% because they spend it. They don’t save it in a Swiss bank account. And how can money quickly get into the hands of the lower 25%? The Federal Government.
But wait! Oh no! Not the nasty FEDERAL Government! The bane of the GOP!
Does the word, stalemate, come to mind. It does for me. Then the question must be asked: which party is on the side of The People, the American citizen? I know the answer.
