Harry Reid: Millionaire Job Creators are Like Unicorns
Harry Reid claims that “millionaire job creators” are like unicorns, the Tooth Fairy or factual statements from Debbie Wasserman Schultz: they don’t exist.
Here’s what Reid said:
Reid: “The Republicans say the richest of the rich in our country, even those who make millions every year, shouldn’t contribute more to get our economy back on track. They call our plan, time after time, a tax on job creators, and I say so-called “job creators.” Because I say that, Mr. President, every shred of evidence contradicts this red herring. For example, there have been many outlets, but I’ll concentrate on one. National Public Radio went looking for one of these fictitious millionaire job creators. A reporter reached out to the business groups and a tax lobby in the Republican Congress hoping to interview one of these millionaires. Days ticked by with no luck. Many of our job creators are like unicorns, they’re impossible to find and don’t exist. That’s because only a tiny fraction of people making more than a million dollars, probably less than one percent, are actually small business owners and only a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction is a traditional job creator.”
Yeah, come on, everybody knows that the people with the least amount of money are the ones who are the most likely to hire. It’s Harrynomics 101 folks. Keep in mind though that this is from a leader in a party that claims millionaires don’t create jobs, but unemployment checks do.
Besides, Harry Reid saying that job creators are tough to find is like a bull in a china shop complaining that there isn’t an unbroken tea service anywhere in sight.
If millionaires don’t create jobs, nearly half of Congress (Reid included) owes America an apology and even a resignation for pretending to be able to do just that.
I know one group of millionaires that have never produced a single job and never produced a product that anyone wanted; senators like yourself Reid that do nothing but continue to pillage the money of hardworking taxpayers. You take and take and take, we pay your inflated salaries and fund your outrageous benefit packages. If I had my way your salary would be cut in half(or more), or better yet only be paid on an hourly basis and only when you are actually in the senate chamber doing only what you were elected to do. Any ridiculous jaunts to expensive resorts or foreign countries would be paid for from your pocket, out of your salary. Trips to and from your state and D.C. would be paid for by the taxpayer but you would be required to fly commercial in economy class with a minimal per diem.
