    This IS the logic at work.
    If enough people within the Democratic base understood that consumers are the job creators, that even the richest person in the world can’t afford to expand in an environment where consumers don’t have enough disposable income (i.e. money to spend) to buy the additional products/services that must be sold in order to generate the additional profits required to cover the costs of those new jobs, we (the Democratic base) could then operate as a cohesive unit to pressure the administration to get an economic clue. But as it stands, there are just too many dimwits within our party who can easily fall for the administration's tax-cuts for ‘job-creators’ shtick, which is still supply-side trickle-down economic philosophy. They’re every bit as dumb as poor republicans who have always supported trickle-down economic philosophy against their own interests.
