Which means we are NOT practicing trickle down economics.

you disputed your own thread.. Well done..

That's bull****. Job growth is crappy and raises have been nil because they will hire as few as possible and those they hire they will pay as little as possible

Loving the deflection on this thread. The trickle down failure is the new guy's fault!

Ronnie is probably chuckling in the hereafter. The snake oil is still selling!

The GOPers have short term memory pretending none of their politicians believed in trickle down economics.

Regulations highest in history.

Local state income property taxes and "fees" highest in history.

Importation of labor highest in history.

Trickle down.......

ITS NOT..
I agree. QE is welfare though. The problems here is that Obama oversaw the largest welfare program in the history of the world for the rich but far too many still only want to blame the (R)'s so their complaints ring hollow. They don't care about the lower classes like they claim, they only care about party.

That isn't what he said. See above.

#Exposing Republican Lies#
What taxes are you talking about?
Our real tax rate in California is 50 percent for the working class .. those of us working that is...with all the hidden taxes... and a large chunk goes to liberal social programs and support of illegal aliens

Lefties and their ignorant ideology have never had a clue about what supply side economics actually is.

They laugh and make jokes about "trickle down", as if the corporations and businesses were supposed to take the tax savings and ride through the streets throwing money out their windows.

In truth, they take the savings and reinvest in their businesses and actually grow their business creating more employment.

Here's the key factor.....if you have minimum skills and/or put in minimum effort, you'll earn minimum wages.

Republicans generally don't even pretend tax cuts to the wealthy create jobs anymore. They know it's been a thoroughly debunked policy, especially given trends over the past 15 years. They still do promote tax cuts anyway, pretending those tax cuts will prevent "more jobs from going over seas", even though that strategy hasn't worked either.
