    Historical statistics clearly show that lower taxes for the wealthy does not stimulate job growth.
    Thoughts?

    Since the rich create the jobs, with money, the more money they have the more jobs they can afford to create.

    Tax credits or subsidies to the rich would be the most obvious way to create jobs.

    The more venture capital there is that is not taxed away at the point of a liberal gun the more new venture capital is available for the Googles and HPs of the world. Only a liberal would argue with the obvious

    Well, the wealthy sure haven't done what job creators do now have they?
    Please note the graph I attached. The wealthy created more jobs when they were paying higher taxes.
    Look at the scenario since 2008, the wealthy are the few who have expanded their wealth to levels they have not experienced in modern history. If jobs increased at half the rate the wealthy increased their wealth, unemployment would hardly exist.

    100% on the contrary. They have brilliantly created jobs for 92% of the American people despite the liberal's housing bubble recession and the liberal's $15 trillion debt!! If liberals would get out of the way the rich could easily create full employment and shower us with more fun new products!

    Let's accept the premise.

    Does taking more of what doesn't belong to you, from people you don't even know, and throwing it down the gubmint rat hole make your life any better?....No.
