Hillary Clinton, who along with her husband Bill knows something about the economics of making money, is so desperate to get to the left of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who might challenge her, that she’s saying things she knows aren’t the least bit true.
Really? Businesses don’t create jobs?
That’s what she said:
Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs. They always say that . . . Don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. You know that old theory, trickle-down economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.
The difference, actually, is that President Obama deserves more credit. When he said “you didn’t build that” to owners of businesses, he actually believed it. Hillary knows better. But she’ll do or say whatever it takes.
