“Job Creators.” Sound familiar? It’s a key concept for those of both major parties who want to yet again lower the taxes of the richest Americans. The economic theory is that rich people invest their excess wealth in companies that hire the little people.

Essentially non-existent but three years ago, now it’s repeated regularly. Repetition, not logic, makes the term a central part of our political discourse today.
