    Supply vs. demand.

    If the supply side can create all the product that they want free of taxes and regulations it won't matter if there is no demand. If the middle class have no disposable income, the demand slows down.

    Now if the middle class are flourishing and have money to spend, the demand becomes obvious and business and in turn jobs will be created to meet that demand.

    The real "job creators" are not the rich, but the people who purchase the products. If they have no money, they make no purchases.

    So yes, we should be catering to the job creators. It's just a matter of deciding who truly are the job creators that is the question.

    In a government and society based on equal treatment.. we should not be 'catering' to anyone.. rather we should have equal treatment under law by government, period... not worry about who will benefit, who will cast votes, what is 'fair' etc...

    So do you disagree with who the job creators are?

    My company does cater to the needs of the consumer. It also offers good wages to employees, offers benefits, retirements, healthcare.....so there's nothing wrong when it makes billions of dollars.

    So a company is doing well meeting the demand for its product while turning a nice profit...it does not see an increase in demand on the horizon so it has no reason to grow....and you fault them for not hiring?

    The consumers are not the job creators. They are the ones who create the NEED for jobs.
    In the end, the ones who take the risk to expand their business are the actual job creators.

    Sure do, but how many rich people are there versus the middle class?

    And to be honest, the rich are more likely to know how to save their money while the middle class is more prone to spend as much as they can.
