Where are the jobs from all those tax cuts?

George Bush and Republicans delivered tax cut after tax cut,  largely aimed at the so called "job creators",  the wealthiest Americans.  Where are all the jobs they promised?

US Employed in Jan 2001: 132.4 M  (George Bush took office)
US Employed in  Jul 2011: 131.0 M  (8 years of Bush,  3 of Obama)

Avg income 400 highest paid Americans 2001: $131 M
Avg income 400 highest paid Americans 2008: $270 M (latest year reported)

The rich have gotten richer,  that's for darn sure.  But we have no jobs to show for all those Republican tax cuts,  yet we're saddled with $14 Trillion in debt.

Why is that Senator Burr?  Please, tell us again why it is that we must under-tax the very wealthy while our nation continues to rack up massive debt.  Because they create jobs?  Where are the jobs Senator?  Where?

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
