Sharron Angle on Jobs
But Reid, too, is known for making strange remarks. Angle tried to score by reminding the debate audience that Reid had once said the Iraq war had been lost. "That emboldened our enemies, demoralized our troops and endangered them, and you need to apologize to them, Senator," Angle chided. Reid countered with the many things he's done for veterans and his endorsement from the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
On economic issues, Angle reiterated her belief that job creation does not fall under the job description of a U.S. Senator, arguing. "It's your job to create policies that create the confidence for the private sector to create those jobs."
"That'd be a no?" the moderator prompted, pushing for a firm yes or no answer to his question.
"I believe my job is to create the policies that will encourage private sector to do what they do best," she responded. "We need to get back to work," Angle said. "The way we do that is by encouraging the private sector to do what they do best. [Employers] are in a cloud of uncertainty & they're holding back $2 trillion that they would like to invest in jobs. They have lost confidence because of things like Obamacare."
