Hillary Clinton: ‘Ignore people who says corporations, businesses create jobs’

During a campaign rally for Martha Coakley, Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Massachusetts, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made some comments about private businesses not being job creators.

Speaking on Friday, Clinton told a Democratic audience to ignore people who say “corporations and businesses create jobs.”

UPDATE: Clinton attempts to correct her message HERE

Newsbusters pointed out that “all three network Sunday morning political shows (ABC’s This Week, CBS’s Face The Nation, and NBC’s Meet the Press) conveniently ignored Ms. Clinton’s remarks during their midterm coverage.”

“You know that old theory, trickle-down economics. 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,” the likley 2016 Presidential candidate said.

This got laughs from the crowd.

Newsbusters added that “ABC’s This Week was the only network Sunday show to mention Clinton’s name but it came in the context of whether or not Monica Lewinsky’s speech earlier in the week would impact her decision to seek the White House in 2016.

HuffPo was quick to draw comparisons to President Obama’s 2012 “You didn’t build that” remoark, saying “…Like Clinton, Obama was laying out the progressive case that businesses owe some of their success to the efforts of government.”

“A Clinton aide told Politico on Friday that her remark referred to tax breaks for corporations. But that likely won’t be enough to dissuade Republicans from featuring it in ads come 2016.”

“To me, it’s really a simple question — who’s on your side?” Clinton said in Massachusetts.

She said Coakley had worked to hold “financial institutions accountable for the damage they have done to our economy and to individual lives … opportunity, fairness, equality, that is the story of this woman’s commitment to public service and that is why she will be a great governor.”
