    Yep Ttwtt .....then comes the clarification.



    Hillary Clinton tries to walk back jobs comments.....

    Hillary Clinton tried Monday to walk back some comments she made last week about job creation that landed her in hot political water. Oops. Cue the outrage, and later, the clarification.

    On Monday, Clinton said she “short-handed” her point about the failure of trickle-down economics. More from Clinton on Monday, via Politico: “Our economy grows when businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying jobs here in America and workers and families are empowered to build from the bottom up and the middle out — not when we hand out tax breaks for corporations that outsource jobs or stash their profits overseas.” She made the comments at a campaign event in upstate New York for Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.....snip~

    Of course, Clinton thinks that tax breaks or outright "investments" (gifts or interest free loans) to corporations that donate to the correct party/candidate are just peachy as "stimulus". Big oil bad, big green good.

    The game is on now and the left will veer left and the right will veer right for the 2016 primary contests and then both will return to the normal "center" for the 2016 general election. It matters little who wins since the proper palms will be greased and the federal gov't will continue to grow in both power and expense.

    Do you think all those saying she was taking out of context can figure out what that means to walk back her comment?
    She (and her husband) only said that to appease that sect of the Democrat party who worships Elizabeth Warren and her anti-Capitalist hate mongering..

    So, here we go again...business doesn't create jobs...what a joke.
    Boy, are some people reaching here.

    Everyone who knows even a little bit about business knows that companies don't exist to create jobs: they exist to make money. That's it.

    The fewer people they can manage to hire and still deliver their product, the more money they can put toward their bottom line. This is hardly news.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

    Customers create jobs. Any business owner who thinks otherwise is delusional.
