If you think corporations have the citizen's best interest in mind
When did I ever say that? They have the shareholders best interests in mind. But that is what actually creates jobs - investors create jobs. The government doesn't create jobs - except mostly do-nothing jobs created from taxing those who actually create things.
The investors you are talking about do create jobs in China in India in the Philippines in Mexico in Taiwan. Those countries are producing something. We only produce consumers that buy the things they make.
The Government DO create jobs, only jobs your party line doesn't like. Who do you think made the road that you used to drive to your job this morning? Who do you think made that Airport that you use? Who do you think inspected that produce from Mexico to make sure you don't get ecoli? Who protects you and your family?
In this case private industry (AT&T) is blocking job creation. At&t doesn't want to provide a better service to the people of SC but they also don't want others to do it.
We already gave 300 billion
dollars (in tax money) to the 'job creators' (at&t) to deploy fiber to the home and look what happened, they pocketed the money and we got phone line uverse.
Your arguments are not credible.
