Quote of the Day: The Myth of the Wealthy Job Creators

"... the current orthodoxy among Republicans is that we mustn’t even criticize the wealthy, let alone demand that they pay higher taxes, because they’re 'job creators.' Yet the fact is that quite a few of today’s wealthy got that way by destroying jobs rather than creating them. And [Republican presidential candidate Mitt] Romney’s business history offers a very good illustration of that fact."

--Paul Krugman in today's NYTimes
