Trickle up poverty worked more quickly and efficiently. Squelched the effects of trickle down.

Define "work." If you mean, "did/will it result in further massive concentrations of wealth at the very tippy-top of the economic ladder," then obviously the answer is "yes."

Obama's trickle-up poverty is working according to plan. Maybe the OP should pay more attention to the present?

And maybe you should take a look at the past, to see what Romney has in store for us: more tax cuts for the very rich, higher taxes for everyone else. How exactly will that help to create jobs and reduce poverty?

Should the middle and lower class be penalized then? That's what Romney will do...
