A Great Quote

Someone finally got to Steve Wynn....Vegas casino operator and ultra businessman....and asked him about the government helping to make jobs happen, and he said:

Government has never increased the standard of living of one single human being in civilization's history. For some reason that simple truth has evaded everybody. The only thing that creates an increased standard of living is giving someone a job, the demand for their labor -- whether it's you and I, Chris, or anybody else. The people that are paying the price for this juggernaut of federal spending are the middle class and the working class of America.

It was a tremendous moment of wisdom. He is correct....no government has ever increased a standard of living.
