How is “businesses don’t create jobs” shorthand for “businesses create jobs”? We hate to say it, but it’s probably time to re-familiarize ourselves with “Clinton-speak” — for example, what the meaning of “is” is.
As Twitchy reported, Hillary Clinton told an audience in Massachusetts last week, “Don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Today, though, Clinton admitted she had “short handed” the point and asked for an opportunity to make her point “absolutely clear.”
According to BuzzFeed’s Ruby Cramer, this is what Clinton said today at a campaign event for New York Rep. Sean Maloney: “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.”
Yeah, that’s pretty much the same thing.
