    A wall street reganista trickle down advocate 1%er before a congress who would eventually rescind Glass Steagal

    Both making excuses for their micro economic focus, w/out a clue of macro economic fallout it created

    The Trumpsters will have no idea what you're talking about. They are told that the macroeconomic fallout was all the Dems' fault, every last bit of it, and that's what they parrot.

    But yeah, the repeal of G/S was a foundational piece of what would come.

    they acknowledge Trump was a big supporter of Reagan Mac

    what they'll shy away from are adopting Reagan's policies 40 years after Reagan instituted them

    '91 was 10 years after Reagan's trickle down TV debut
    [​IMG]

    what we hear is Trump (then the wall streeter) advocating for it in front of Congress ,advocate to supply side economics trickle down before it really had time to metastasize

    What we see Trump (now the potus) doing is recreating the very same doctrine that failed , obvious by the disparity it created

    I haven’t seen the latest reports on income inequality, but something tells me it is only getting better for the billionaires.

    Agreed. Our government has gone rogue and isn’t even bothering to hide their criminality. Most ironic they are focused on impeachment, when the whole damn government needs removal.

    Of course you are simply lying.

    Fact = Neither Reagan nor Trump has ever advocated "trickle down".

    Perhaps you were thinking of Chris Mathews? :dunno:
