    Don't worry, John McCain plans to improve the economy by cutting taxes for the rich because it's working so well for Bush.

    It amazes me that the Republicans keep reviving that failed theory of econ.

    Tickle down economics, has been tried three times and failed three times, and STILL they insist it is a viable policy.

    Well it works well enough for their masters, I suppose.

    Drill baby drill and you'll see that number cut in half. Or inflate your tires and see it double. Your choice.
