I guess (and I'll fully admit I'm biased here), I find it really strange to hear people say "trickle down cant work", complete with dire predictions of what will happen, then it's tried and it works and none of the dire predictions happen,
It's never worked, not once. Why? Oh right, fucking math. If the math worked and the ideology sucked, I'd support it. I support lots of things that have unfortunate ideological implications. I think "the bailout" math only worked one way, while at the same time finding supporting the failure of an industry controlled by the super wealthy with middle class tax dollars morally repugnant. The math though, matters. The math behind "trickle down" leads to less tax revenue, a hollowed out middle class and movement of wealth to the already wealthy. Which is the point, of course, but the argument that it leads to broad economic growth is thoroughly disproved at any sort of serious intellectual level, leading to comic slogans like "it's never good for the economy to raise taxes" instead of an actual economic argument. Because there isn't one.
The good news, for you, is that the vast majority of people don't understand the math (you know how that is, eh?) so the fact that it's not a viable economic model won't stop policy based on the idea. The good news for me is that the Fed can do the math, so we're on our third round of quantitative easing, likely rescuing us from the crushing depression we'd have experienced if austerity hawks had been able to accomplish anything they claim to believe in.
To make a long story short, I don't take any responsibility for anything I post here. It's not news, it's not truth, it's not serious. It's parody. It's satire. It's bitter. It's angsty. Your mother's a *****. You like to jack off dogs. That's right, you heard me. You like to grab that dog by the bone and rub it like a ski pole. Your dad? ***. Your priest? Straight. **** off and let me post. It's not true, it's all in good fun. Now go away.
