    Raising taxes brings more money into the government, and the government uses that money to create jobs. Then....um......yeah it makes no sense to me at all.

    Higher Taxes => Higher Revenue => Repair, Restore, Create infrastructure => Jobs => Private Business Makes Use of Infrastructure => Goods faster to Market => Safe and Trusted Markets => More Private Revenue

    What actually happens is:

    Higher taxes => more spending on entitlements, payoffs, wasted programs in crony's districts=>lack of good working infastructure is kept unfunded so as to be used again fas an excuse to increase taxes more=>jobs go over seas to escape taxes=> jobs lost => more entitlements

    need more?
