            Ms. Solem is voicing what any honest small business owner will tell you if they're not hopeless right-wing ideologues spouting their political talking points - that more and more tax cuts for the rich, which Republicans falsely claim will help small businesses create jobs - won't infact help any of them create jobs. Demand by people who want to buy their goods and services is what creates jobs. Surveys done near the end of 2011 prove the point. In fact, NPR conducted an investigation, contacting many small business owners, Republican politicians spouting their nonsense, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, etc., asking if they could name ONE SMALL BUSINESS OWNER who will testify that high taxes are holding them back from hiring and that with more tax cuts they will start hiring, and NOT A SINGLE BUSINESS OWNER was identified.
