RealClearPolitics – Video – Sherrod Brown: Tax Cuts Don’t Create Jobs, Unemployment Benefits Do
A video to accompany my last post to demonstrate the class warfare rhetoric that hurts the process of extending the tax cuts. These comments disrupt the bipartisan talks toward a compromise or full extension.
“It’s extending unemployment benefits that creates economic activity that creates jobs, not giving a millionaire an extra ten or twenty or thirty k in tax cuts they they likely won’t spend” – Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio). That’s a shocking statement that is purely political, and I think most people, whether your for increasing unemployment benefits or not, understand that it economically just isn’t true.
