The Great Divide, Part 1: The Job Creator Myth

NAILED IT. Rachel Maddow tonight unmasked the Republican "Job Creator" myth for what it really is: A LIE. It is a manufactured myth/lie that is being repeated in the Extreme Right echo chamber. The Koch Brothers (Charlie, David) saw their privately-held company net worth grow by 40% over the past 4 years...good for them! They are now worth $50b, that's $11b more than Warren Buffet. During that same period, the Koch companies shed over 13,000 jobs, not good for those employees!

So..."Job Creators?" No, "Self-Wealth Creators." It's all a lie folks, and if you out there have any sympathy for the Koch Brothers, or any non-job creators making multi-millions per year, then you are FAR more compassionate a person than I. And very, very easily duped.

Thank you, Rachel Maddow, thank you, "spirit of investigative reporting," thank you, Census Bureau.
A week after the Census Bureau reported that American poverty has hit an all time high, America has learned the wealth of Charles and David Koch has increased 43% since March of 2010.
