Sharron Angle - Harry Reid debate: Is it a senator's job to create jobs?
Fox, harkening to an oft-repeated Angle remark: "Do you believe getting jobs is not your job?"
Nope, says Angle. "My job is to create the policies to encourage the private sector to do what they do best, and that is creating jobs."
Fox: "So that means no?"
Angle: Nods in agreement.
Reid responds. He boasts of ways he's helped bring jobs to Nevada through tax policy -- at McCarran Airport, at Harrah's, where, he said, "We saved 31,000 jobs alone. My opponent is against those. My job is to create jobs. ... My opponent is extreme."
Angle responds: "Harry Reid, it's not your job to create jobs. It's your job to create confidence to get the private sector to create jobs." She says employers have lost confidence because of "Obamacare." Those policies, she says, are causing job loss.
