On whose altar?

Kirk Ross cuts to the trickle-down chase.

If you unpack the idea that these cuts are necessary in order to encourage the job creators to turn around the economy, it follows that those suffering while we wait for the turnaround are being sacrificed.



How many new employees

How many new employees will any business hire when their current workforce is successfully filling all the orders?

Of course, the trickle-down tax cuts and other "incentives" will simply end up in the coffers of already-wealthy institutional shareholders and corporate executives.


The measure of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. - FDR

trickle down has NEVER worked

Why do Americans buy into the BULLSHIT of trickle down. It didn't work in the 30's; didn't work under Reagan (even Stockman has expressed great regret in implementing it); it was a massive failure under Dubya. What in the hell does one need to do in order to prove to America it's a false promise?
