Where do the jobs and money come from?

Dear Editor:

I would like to quote from Dave Skeldon’s letter, Isanti County News, Nov. 23, “It’s not the rich who makes a country strong, It’s the middle class. When the middle class have jobs and money to spend the whole country prospers.” Has Dave considered where the jobs and money for the middle class comes from?

    Larrie might want to consider the words of Nick Hanauer, a venture capitalist, who explained very well that it is the MIDDLE CLASS CONSUMER, not the rich, who creates jobs through supply and demand. Additionally, we’ve had decades of tax cuts favoring the rich with nothing to show for it except a shrinking middle class, jobs overseas and government deficits. I think both Dave and Nick are right on the spot.
