    "the economy grows from the middle class out". I heard numerous democrats say that lately and it doesn't make sense. If your middle class, you are not hiring anyone, and you don't have much discretionary income to stimulate the economy- investment wise.

    The Democrats don't understand how the economy works. From what I can gather they think that the Middle class grows the economy because they are the ones doing the buying mostly. They can't understand how jobs come into play and how corporations and businesses make the products, etc. They think it's a linear progression from the middle class consumer out. I've tried on many occasions to make them understand how it all fits together, they simply won't or can't understand.

    Well, when you think about it, if they were smart, they wouldn't be liberals.

    Because the middle class does the bulk of the spending and buying.

    Without that buying power, who are the producers going to sell to?

    wealthy people dont need food, or support the resturants that pop up trying to get that biz? Seriously? I see more poor and middle class using the coupons and staying home compared to teh wealthy guy taking the family out.

    Because they weren't aborted when their moms were pregnant with them.
