    Its called "Trickle Down"

    You give money to GM and it trickles down to the workers and the rest of the economy. Its a keystone of Reaganomics

    You are so full of fail. You battle straw armies and still lose.

    Giving money to failing corporations is not trickle down. True trickle down would be giving money to wildly successful corporations, in the expectation that they wold be even wildly successful.

    Second, Reagan was all about releasing the burden on working people.

    Your mind must be something along the lines of a titanium shell. Shiny, tiny, empty and impenetrable.

    Damn right.

    I get bothered when people accuse me of being deliberately and maliciously stupid.

    Sorry about the parthian shot. I should have restrained myself.

    It's "Supply Side" boyo.

    And that entails tax cuts to motivate growth and spur job creation.

    What Obama is doing is monopolizing the money - taking it out of the hands of free enterprise and tying it up in some kind of incest-driven collaboration between the government and the FED.

    A very dangerous economic path...
