    Yes they are because he is going to use the deficit he created as an excuse to gut those programs.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Uhmmm...If I'm going to pay a 90% tax rate on the income generated from new equipment that I bought, I'm not buying new equipment. In a nutshell, if I'm earning nothing from an investment, it doesn't matter how little I have to spend for it. The humorous part is that this is Piosian. James came out with this year's ago.



    How'd that soda thing work out again? You realize he got hit in the face with a supply-side fist? Taxes change behavior. People didn't buy less soda but bought two smaller sodas instead.



    Nobody making $2 bucks a day can truly compete with an educated American in the work place. That $2 buck a day laborer doesn't have the human capital.



    It's been very successful in your lifetime. Your cognitive dissonance is too great to admit it.
    Okay so where were all these jobs when either Bush was President? Why has the gap between the rich and the poor increased steadily since we first fell in love with this fantasy?

    You do realize this makes you sound desperate.

    Actually Eisenhower came up with it before him.

    Trickle down is not about lowering taxes. It is about lowering them on the wealthy in hopes that their beneficence will some how trickle down to the workers. That my friend has never happened.

    This is already being discussed.

    Because the middle class is moving up.

    Never has---never will

    It is the propaganda the powers that be send out to faithful---it is the firewall-----put up the partisan BS while the fat cats run away to Panama

    1st it was war on unions---now that they're all but out of the way---little guy is easy---send out the attack dogs

    Look money in your wallet---what's wrong with that-----don't worry about the future or reality for that matter---Dollars is the war cry----who cares about the country and running it

    What's a Trillion and a half extra debt between friends

    Takes a lot of balls to say the middle class is moving up

    Used to be someone could get a mid level job and at least pay the rent and put some food on the table

    Now that person has to work several jobs and a lot can't make it

    So ya Bullshit
