Ask a Republican why the Bush tax cuts didn’t create any jobs and this is the kind of answer you get.
BLOOMBERG’S AL HUNT: But I’m asking, why did the economy grow a lot? Why were more jobs created in the previous decade under higher taxes than in this decade under lower taxes?
REPRESENTATIVE FRED UPTON (R-MI): I don’t know specifically the answer to that question. I can – I can maybe merit a guess. But, I mean, in large part is because our job – we lost jobs. I mean, look at the jobs report that came out this last week, three-hundred- some-thousand people actually stopped looking for jobs.
It’s because tax cuts don’t create jobs no matter how hard you wish for it.
