Apparently, Harry Reid is claiming now that millionaires do not create jobs, apparently under the idea that millionaires somehow manage to buy the things they enjoy and make capital investments without anyone ever getting employed as a result. In a just society, Reid's closest advisers would be telling him to resign his office for making a comment that stupid. For the record, I am personally acquainted with several millionaires who have provided jobs for others; my stepfather (a retired dentist), the owner of the local hardware store, a farmer out in far eastern Colorado (unincorporated Nebraska; it's on the state line), and others. And yes, taxing Jim, Charlie, or Lee more heavily will put someone out of work.
One would figure that men who portray those who purchase luxury cars (as opposed to having the taxpayers pay for them as Reid does) as enemies of the people would at least figure out that the people working at the Mercedes, Cadillac, or Lexus dealership benefit from the deal, but apparently not.
