Hell no.

Demand creates new jobs….

Compare these two scenarios.

Scenario 1: “Uh, Mr. Small Businessman? I’m Mitch McConnell, Republican… I understand you are having some troubles making your payments to the bank… I understand they are about to close you down… It’s the economy, I know. What can you do?… Well, let me tell you what I’ll do… For every new hire you put on the payroll, I’ll pay your 6.3% of their Social Security tax. Think you can hire some people for me?”

Answerer: “Uh…. No… I can’t even pay my bills now. How will hiring and paying out more money, keep me out of liquidation?”

Mitch: “Uh, did you miss the part where I said I’d pay the 6.3% portion of their social security tax?”

Answerer: “Uh… Did you miss the math that I don’t have $500 to pay out in salary each week in order to get a palsy 6.3% of that back at end of the year?”

Tax Breaks do not create jobs. If they did, this would have never happened….

Supply Side Tax Cuts Failed to Deliver Jobs and Income
Growth between 2001 and 2007

The Bush presidency had the weakest jobs and income growth in the post-war period. Overall monthly job growth was the worst of any cycle since at least February 1945, and household income growth was negative for the first cycle since tracking began in 1967. Women reversed employment gains of previous cycles. And for African Americans, the worst job growth on record was matched by an unprecedented increase in poverty.

Now lets look at scenario 2:

Hey, Dave A or B. Can you order some more shoes, sizes 3 to 12? See if you can get it done between putting away the truck, and waiting on that long line of customers? Hey, don’t forget to check that invoice?

Answerer: “Fuck running a small business by myself. I’m hiring help today…” (runs and puts closed sign on door)

Demand creates jobs. Tax breaks don’t, didn’t, and simply can’t.

Therefore, voting for Democrats who create jobs, as opposed to Republicans who eliminate them, is the only solution out of our economic quagmire.

You may not like Democrats and wish for another alternative, but face it: there is no other way.
