Hillary Clinton has now joined Obama in making a decidedly anti-business remark. While the camps of both politicians attempted to explain these away as gaffes, they still raise a host questions. The most important of which is how these two top Democratic leaders actually feel about the private sector, in which the vast majority of Americans work.
The other week at a Boston rally, Hillary Clinton came out with this jaw-dropper: “Don’t let anybody tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs.” If that sounds more than vaguely reminiscent, it should. Obama said essentially the same thing in a 2012 campaign rally. Speaking about infrastructure and the wealthy paying higher taxes, Obama took verbal flight: “…If you've got a business — you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
While both politicians’ camps sought to undo the damage — Hillary doing so three days later at another Massachusetts rally — when two people of such importance make essentially the same huge mistake, it raises a host of questions America should be asking.
