My local Mahoning County Democrats recently posted the the following:
Who are the job creators? Let's set the job record straight. In the 23 years that Democrats have occupied the White House since John F. Kennedy took office in January 1961, non-government jobs have increased by nearly 42 million, compared with 24 million jobs created during the 28 years under Republican presidents.
Really, the consumers are the job creators. And, currently, they lack both the funds and/or the confidence in our economy to make purchases. Tax-breaks for the middle and lower class provides the funds that they will spend. And, frequently, they spend it on necessities. The upper class haven't been using their tax-breaks to create jobs.
