If lower taxes on the rich and rich people getting richer created more jobs... then we would be drowning in jobs. The rich are the richest they have ever been and their taxes are the lowest they have been.
Only consumers can set in motion this virtuous cycle of increasing demand and hiring. Consumers are job creators. A booming middle class is the only way to have job creation.
We need a monetary policy and a tax system that works for the middle class.

NATO commander admits that "flickers" of Al Qaeda and Hezbollah terrorists among the Libyan rebels. This should officially classify them as "associated forces" under the NDAA of 2012. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtGe6zk52Cw
The NATO commander tries to play this off like it's nothing like the Bush administration tried to play off the massive number of civilian casualties in Iraq. Like the Obama administration tries to play off the civilian casualties in the drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen.
So it's no surprise to see video likes this pop up from the "rebels" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Does anyone remember when the government supported the Mujahideen and the Afghan Arabs in the Afghanistan...? Remember how terrible that turned out? It's the exact same thing as what happened in Libya. Our government with NATO supported them only because they were an opposition to Gaddafi, not necessarily because they were the good guys.
