Wow.

While campaigning for Martha Coakley in Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton took a jab at trickle down economics and in the process of doing so, claimed that corporations and businesses don’t create jobs.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story:

Hillary Clinton: Corporations and Businesses Don’t Create Jobs

At a Democratic rally in Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton’s attempt to attack “trickle-down economics,” resulted in a spectacularly odd statement.

Clinton defended raising the minimum wage saying “Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs, they always say that.”

She went on to state that businesses and corporations are not the job creators of America. “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” the former Secretary of State said.

Here’s the video:

On a related note, do you know who’s a big fan of trickle down economics?

Hillary Clinton’s good friend Barack Obama.

Still, it was nice of Mrs. Clinton to campaign for Martha Coakley because she needs help.

According to FOX News in Boston, Republican Charlie Baker is now in the lead:

New poll shows Baker takes 9-point lead over Coakley in race for governor

A new Boston Globe poll released Thursday shows that Republican Charlie Baker has a 9-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley in the race for governor.

Baker has moved up from 38-percent support to 45-percent since August. Coakley is trailing with 36-percent. The new poll, showing results from Oct. 19 through Oct. 22, has a plus or minus 4-point margin of error.

Coakley’s campaign released a statement in response to the poll, calling it an “outlier” and “the only public poll to show such intense volatility in the race for governor, going from Baker up 3 three weeks ago to Coakley up 5 two weeks ago, to even last week and Baker up 9 this week.”

It looks like even true blue Massachusetts is ready for real change.
