Hillary Corrects Herself: Businesses Do Create Jobs

By    |   Monday, 27 Oct 2014 06:57 PM

Under fire for saying corporations and businesses don't create jobs, Hillary Clinton clarified on Monday: they do.

Clinton made the original statement on Friday during a campaign rally for Massachusetts Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley.

"Don't let anybody tell you that it's corporations and businesses that create jobs," Clinton said while blasting "trickle-down economics."

Conservatives immediately jumped on the line, with Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus telling Newsmax TV that Clinton is "trying too hard" and is "not really good" at politics.

"I don't know if she was a little off script on that particular moment, but it clearly wasn't natural and it was certainly awkward," Priebus said. "If it was serious, then she doesn't understand capitalism and democracy in a way that business and jobs operate."

Far-left Democrats were critical, too, accusing Clinton, whom they blame for being a friend of Wall Street, with trying to be more like liberal Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

A Clinton aide said she had meant to say tax cuts for businesses and corporations didn't create jobs.

On Monday, Clinton was stumping in New York for Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. She again stated that "trickle-down economics has failed," Politico reports.

"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," Clinton said.

"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."
