Hillary: "Business Does Not Create Jobs", Washington Does

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Martin Armstrong via Armstrong Economics blog,


We have a very serious problem with Hillary. I was asked years ago to review Hillary’s Commodity Trading to explain what went on. Effectively, they did trades and simply put winners in her account and the losers in her lawyer’s. This way she gets money that is laundered through the markets – something that would get her 25 years today.

People forget, but Hillary was really President – not Bill. Just 4 days after taking office, Hillary was given the authority to start a task force for healthcare reform. The problem was, her vision was unbelievable. The costs upon business were oppressive so much so that not even the Democrats could support her. When asked how was a small business mom and pop going to pay for healthcare she said if they could not afford it they should not be in business. From that moment on, my respect for her collapsed. She revealed herself as a real Marxist.

Now, that she can taste the power of Washington, and I dare say she will not be a yes person as Obama and Bush seem to be, therein lies the real danger. Giving her the power of dictator, which is the power of executive orders, I think I have to leave the USA just to be safe.

Hillary has stated when she ran the White House before regarding her idea of healthcare, “We can’t afford to have that money go to the private sector. The money has to go to the federal government because the federal government will spend that money better than the private sector will spend it.” When has that ever happened?

Hillary believes in government at the expense of the people. I do not say this lightly, because here she goes again. She just appeared at a Boston rally for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley on Friday. She was off the hook and amazingly told the crowd gathered at the Park Plaza Hotel not to listen to anybody who says that “businesses create jobs.”

“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton said.

“You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics,’” she continued. “That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”

“You know, one of the things my husband says when people say ‘Well, what did you bring to Washington,’ he said, ‘Well, I brought arithmetic,’” Hillary said.

I wrote an OpEd for the Wall Street Journal on Clinton’s Balanced Budget. It was smoke and mirrors. Long-term interest rates were sharply higher than short-term. Clinton shifted the national debt to save interest expenditures. He also inherited a up-cycle in the economy that always produces more taxes.

Yet she sees no problem with the math of perpetually borrowing. Perhaps she would get to the point of being unable to sell debt and just confiscate all wealth since government knows better. Their job on keeping Ebola out is just fantastic so far? Just a few people popping up here and there. Maybe everyone from New York should get a free weekend to visit Washington.

Vince Foster approved that statement.

Hey, I AM living living in a shotgun shack! And it's because of you Keynesian commies!!!

The MSM will never tell the truth about the Clintons... They covered it up 20 years ago and it will get buried again... Doesn't matter that they were the biggest drug dealers in the southern US, along with the Bushes...

Know what they can't cover up? THAT GIANT SUCKING SOUND!

If this woman really stated this, and worse yet, believes this, we are fucked beyond any possible realm of the capacity of human imagination.

This has to be some sort of parallel universe we're on the cusp of entering.

Hitlery will NEVER be Prez.

Toxic beyond belief!

Her only chance was in 2008, and she would have won easily...

But Obozo and his sycophant MSM usurped her.

And that's why the Klintoons absolutely HATE the Obozo's.

LBJ had a budget surplus too.

We don't elect Governments to have budget surpluses. I would like to think we have Government to prevent Ebola from wiping out 20% of the USA though.

This would be especially true if the Government itself created the virus to begin with.

"CUNT" just like my Ex. Wife.

And it has nothing to do with politics whatsoever.

You guys claim you want this clown show to collapse, and here is the best chance since 2008.  I m surprised there hasn’t been a ZH block-captain drive by now.  Then again, I am surprised that Obola hasn't been sued for malfeasance for failing to collapse this bitch in six years.  Can't pancake a ponzi scheme or break par in six years.  Is that not the definition of government?

What difference does it make?

Think of her statement this way. Yes, it creates jobs for the connected, well-to-do libtards. Screw everyone else!

Squid-puppets a-go-go's picture

if she thinks govt creates jobs better than industry, im totally fucking baffled to imagine what she though brought down the USSR

Republican much?


Still thinks in terms of Republicans and Democrats......how cute!

The Clintons are proven pathological liars.  I personally hope she becomes prez and demands her vision imposed on the US.  The collapse would come much sooner and on her watch.  She clearly could care less about the citizens of this country.

We're going to go from one cheeky bastard to another.  16 years of cheeky bastards leading the US.  What a joke.

I wish her all the best cancers there are in her body. I just hope that she'll not start dropping bombs in europe like her ex psycho husband.

Word is, "it's" had an Add-A-Dick-To-Me"...all the better to screw this country.

There is no such thing as jobs

Hitler also told his people that the only way out of the recession is job creation through massive central planning.

I think she will. Stated why here before.

Bilderberg meeting during the Dem primary between Obama and Hilary. IMO Obama got the nod to be prezzie first, then Hilary. All about keeping the peace, first appease minorities, then women.

ETA: Rs can not win if they lose Texas. Texas is majority minority so only a matter of time.

Hillary is proof that the Democrats have gone completely insane. She's a stupid bitch, and the Americans fully deserve her...

nyuszika45's picture

There is a story about that.  Remember the killing of Bill Gwatney, the Ark Dem Chairman, one day by a zombie shooter who was conveniently wiped out by the Ark State Police later?  The word at the time was that the kiling was a warning to Hillary and Bill who were going to release all the real legal documents on the BO to derail his run... and the target was to be their child if tey didn't cease and desist.  So they backed off and the BO got to win as planned.  It is just a story, but not unfitting with the gangster environment that is the central government these days, which is why it is remembered.

I disagree. The simple reason why she lost out in 2008 was because the MSM knew they would enjoy many more orgasms and much more milage over the first black prez than they would over the first woman prez.

one set up to fail; to be suceeded by one set up to succeed, for the PTB.

Resist is futile, no?

welcome to the NWO, you are.

Not sure what Hillary has to do with country music but are you trying to say there is something wrong with some George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jerry Reed, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams Sr. or Jr., Jamey Johnson, etc? That's real country music, not that sugar coated pop music garbage they are trying to pass off as country music these days.

They're gonna put me in the movies
They're gonna make a big star out of me
We'll make a film about a communist lesbian that's sad and lonely
And all I have to do is act naturally.
