    The only thing that as trickled down to the middle and lower classes from a Republican economic policy is more yellow than green.

    The only trickle down the middle class gets from the super rich is being p…. on.

    The GQP was trickling down its own leg after Biden’s address.

    I listened to a couple of “usually reliable political pundits” (and ain’t that an odd thing to say) about the speech and response. The one thing I took away from their consensus: Regardless of which party, the “response” is usually pretty weak compared to the President’s address.

    The Republicans want money to go to the rich rather than the middle class because they are beholden to them—the money to finance their campaigns comes from the rich. They tell the public that they are working on the theory that they will “trickle it down”, and everyone will benefit. This is the standard Republican rationale for giving money to those who are already rich. Trickle down has never worked, as far as raising the standard of living, anywhere that it has been tried. And, it is completely illogical to believe that it ever could. If you are paying a guy to cut your lawn and he’s doing an adequate job, then you get a tax cut, do you raise his pay? Neither will the 1%ers. The only reason to spend more on hired help is that you need more workers to get the job done. The only way more workers will be needed is if there is an increased demand for product- in other words people are buying more stuff. The only reason people would be buying more stuff is that they can afford it. And, the only reason that more people can afford more is that they are the ones getting the tax cuts, not the rich guys. Trickle down just gives the rich guys more money to hide offshore, or more money to buy more politicians to write laws so they have more money to hide offshore. If you want that money to stay in America, increase production, and raise everyone’s standard of living, trickle UP will do the job, not trickle down.

    Trickle down tax breaks didn’t happen. Trickle down tax increases will definitely happen.
