There is a myth that is being propagated by talking heads with a conservative philosophy and many Republication politicians: Don't raise taxes on the rich; the rich create jobs! I believe that to be false. Jobs are created when a producer, rich or not, makes a product that a consumer will purchase. Producers do not produce that which will not sell. If they do they will not produce very long! It is almost a given that "the rich" will not squander their wealth. While Romney was campaigning he made a statement that I suspect very few noticed. He said that the rich will do okay regardless of the economy. That is true. We see then that both producer and consumer are the job creators. It is unlikely that the current Obamma economy will improve until consumers start buying. So just how are jobs created. They are created by those who have an idea for a product, have the gumption to try to market that product, are able to raise money to produce that product, and are able to sell that product.. I would note that Bill Gates was not wealthy when he started Mirosoft, the two who started Apple were not wealthy, the college sudent who started Dell Computers was not wealthy, those who started Facebook were not wealthy. The list is long. The list of those who try and do not succeed is longer as is those who succeed for a time and then go bust! Lest any lefties get excited, don't. I am a Conservative, always was, and always will be as long as I live. The free enterprise system is the only economic system that will last. It is the only economic system that enhances rather than degrade human liberty! Furthermore I am not making a statement on income taxes!
