    Pure and simple, trickle down is the best way to optimize economic growth. We got where we are today as the world's greatest economy through just that concept. Nothing else comes close. Nothing. Once the gov't intervenes with higher taxes and more regulation, growth starts to decline. Entrepeneurship, invention, new ideas, all go to hell; why do you think that the US leads the way by such a large margin in new innovations? Every other country on earth copies what we do, from new drugs and technologies to advances in ways to improve productivity.

    For some reason, Obama keeps going back to the failed policy and lie that "spread the wealth around" community organization professes. It keeps on being a failed policy, and it doesn't promote private sector jobs that bat 1000 for competition in the world like free enterprise does.

    Free enterprise is America's crown jewel. Congress better keep on protecting it until the Obama threat is outta there. Obama wants to take it away and put the failed policies of Bolshevik Russia into play. It didn't work then, and it's not going to work now.
