  •  I work for a 1%-er (3+ / 0-)

    ...and as part of my on-boarding process at a new company, I had lunch with the CEO, a self described 1%-er.  

    He laughed at the idea that tax breaks for the wealthy create jobs.  He didn't create MY JOB because he was getting a tax break.  He created MY JOB because other companies are buying his products and services.

    Purchasing is the only true job creator.  A wealthy business owner isn't going to create jobs out of the goodness of their heart (and they shouldn't be expected to).
