But we can keep the wealthy rich by giving them bailouts and tax breaks on the backs of the poor!

Very true. Trickle down economics is the biggest failure in economic history, yet republicans keep seeming to think it works.

Actually its not a failure. The best example I've ever seen is Bill Gates. Gates started out with an idea. He started a business with that idea. Now how many have become millionaires off his idea. How many people has Gates employed and caused money to trickle down. Then they take that money and go out and buy other items causing other products to be in demand.

Yeah that trickle down doesnt work. Just ignore Bill Gates and all the people that became millionaires off his idea and all the houses bought by employees that he hired and pays. That darn trickle down doesnt work just ignore all those folks working at Microsoft

Because you didn't support bailouts, doesn't mean they did not happen.

If trickle up economics doesn't work, why did Bush give stimulus checks to all of those making less than whatever/year to prevent the impending economic collapse?

If the masses can no longer afford to buy houses, 30K cars, restaurant meals, etc........., how will these businesses flourish?

What happens when a high percentage of the population can no longer afford to buy his computers?
