Hillary Clinton Clarifies: Actually, Businesses Do Create Jobs

Hillary Clinton recently said at a campaign rally, “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Today Clinton spoke at another rally today, this one for Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, and she used the opportunity to clarify what she meant.

According to BuzzFeed, Clinton again argued that “trickle-down economics has failed” and went on to say, “I short-handed this point the other day, so let me be absolutely clear about what I’ve been saying for a couple of decades.”

And this is how Clinton explained that earlier remark:

“Our economy grows when businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying jobs here in America and workers and families are empowered to build from the bottom up and the middle out — not when we hand out tax breaks for corporations that outsource jobs or stash their profits overseas.”
