Hillary Demonstrates She Knows Nothing About Economics! – Her “You Didn’t Build That!” Moment
10/25/14 – A confused Hillary Clinton made the bizarre claims that business don’t create jobs and raising the minimum wage doesn’t eliminate jobs! These are both false statements.
Watch her demonstrate how dumb she is for yourself…
Please note the key word (in bold) that she includes in her statement…
“And Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs. They always say that. I’ve been through this. My husband gave working families a raise. In the 1990’s. I voted to raise the minimum wage and guess what? Millions of jobs were created OR paid better and more and more families were more secure.” Using the word “OR”, it could be the case that not a single job was created by raising the minimum wage. She could instead be saying that more than one million got a raise instead!
She knows raising the minimum wage kills jobs, but she wants you to focus instead on the fact that some people got a raise. It’s the union mentality that says so what if there are fewer union workers, just so we get that raise. She is misleading people on purpose.
She continues, “And don’t let anybody, don’t let anybody say that uhm, ya know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. Ya know, that old theory; trickle down economics. That has been tried. That has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.” Wrong again.
First, she claims employers don’t create jobs, but fails to explain her faulty logic. Instead she changes the topic to Ronald Reagan’s spectacularly successful economic plan. She then announces that in her confused mind it didn’t work! Again, she fails to even try to defend her position. Reaganomics created decades of financial growth. Typical liberal: big words, but hollow.
UPDATE 10/27/14: Rush Limbaugh said today that Hillary knows these “Inane, asinine and genuinely stupid comments” are not true but she has to say them to drum up support from the fringe democrat base. “It tells me how afraid of Elizabeth Warren she really is,” Limbaugh said. Warren and President Obama said similar things with their “You didn’t build that” comments.
