Romney unveils NEW spin on old "trickle down"

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, in a wide-ranging bid to create jobs, proposed Tuesday to reduce regulations and taxes on companies, sanction China over its currency practices and weaken the clout of labor unions.

Democrats called Romney's plan wrong-headed and doomed to fail. Taxes already are near historic lows, they noted, and many employers say weak consumer demand is more troubling than taxes or regulation.

Romney called for lowering the corporate income tax to 25 percent, from the current 35 percent. That rate is high compared to other advanced economies, but a host of tax breaks allow many U.S. companies to pay little or no corporate tax. Romney said a lower rate would encourage companies to keep more operations within the United States.

Why are tax cuts for rich people and tax cuts for corporations "new ideas"? These are the same two ideas Republicans have had for the last 20 years. You have to admit, rich people are more rich than they've ever been and corporations have more money than ever. In fact, 25 of the largest corporations pay MORE to their CEOs than in taxes to the government.

Why do Republicans think their failed policies will finally work?

Because being conservative means keeping the status quo. So if anything a repub does doesn't work, it because there should be more of that failing thing they like

Ah, those pesky facts – let them not stand in the way of conservative dogma.

Republicans ----> experts on the economy.

Don't know about "supply and demand".

Thinks rich people make jobs.

In fact, if you pay rich people and corporations, they will "make jobs" whatever "supply and demand" means.
