Words from Rich

All wealth is created through the private sector.  Government cannot create wealth.  It generates its revenues by taking money from one section of the the populace and returning it to another section - minus administrative fees.
Government was never intended to be an engine of growth or wealth creation in this country.  Such a thing would be unthinkable to our founders.  They feared the excesses of government above all else.

Words from Thomas Jefferson
