"Rich businesspeople like me don’t create jobs,” Nick Hanauer, co-founder of aQuantive Inc.To the Plutocrats 'Job creation' is an unfortunate by-product of Wall Street Thievery. If the 1% could find a way to make money... Oh Wait! That is what the entire Bush Presidency was! A time where the 1% increased their share of wealth, when 2 out of every 3 dollars of income growth went to the Elites, squeezed as much loot as possible out of a rigged "Capitalist" system and then got the Bush Government and Federal Reserve to give them over $8,500,000,000,000 dollars to cover their losses.
