    While we argue additional tax cuts for the wealthy and the merits of "trickle down" economics a strange thing has happened. The standard of living for working americans has fallen. We make less money than we did a decade ago while the rich have gotten richer

    The “big news” from the Census report isn’t the drop in income since 2007, which is when Democrats took control of Congress and Capital Markets responded by fleeing US investments like a house on fire; the big news is that the Dem Congress with a Marxists President means the Reagan Boom has formally ended

    and they STILL have nothing better than "trickle down" to offer.
    Seriously - is there any doubt in your mind why they lost????
    The economy was in shambles and all they could do was to repeat the trickle down mantra ..... sort of like suggesting that brain cancer cures the common cold ........

    What is amazing about the census numbers is that in a collapsing economy, the rich somehow got richer. The rightwingnuts criticize the poor and somehow think that it is the poor who are getting hurt. It is every working American who has less. You pay more for homes, your childs education, energy, healthcare....meanwhile salaries remain stagnant and the rich get richer

    Has anything ever trickled up to you? I spent 33 years as an independent contractor, and my employees and I always benefited from the work we did for people because they had enough extra to spend to make their own lives better. That made my employee's and my life better by filling each other's needs. That's trickle down for ya son, the same trickle down that the left has ridiculed since Reagan's time.

    Why do Librul hate rich people? Why do they have such a limited understanding as to how people get rich in America?
