The Job Destroyer
Willard Mitt Romney (aka Wall Street Willie) has tried hard to convince the American people that it is rich people that create jobs in this country. He has to say that because his own record of creating jobs while in political office was a miserable failure (Massachusetts dropped to 47th in job creation during his failed term as governor of that state). But is his record of job creation any better as a rich capitalist (the people he wants us to believe create jobs)? No. It may even be worse. Here are some examples of how Romney "creates" jobs:
The truth is that the rich don't create jobs -- no matter how much money they have. Jobs are created by an increase in demand (which the rich take advantage of to increase their profits). And demand is created when masses of people want to buy goods and services (and have the money to do that). To create jobs, money must be put in the hands of the masses (most Americans) -- not the rich.
When Romney says he is a job creator, he is lying. He is really nothing more than a richer version of George W. Bush (and we know the kind of damage Bush did to the economy). Electing Wall Street Willie to be president would be a disaster for this nation's economy.
