Ok, I can agree with that but when you say it's a war on the wealthy I can't agree with that perspective because it's more then that. It's unrelenting greed that's bringing the country to its knees.

"Ummm not really the "opposite" of the "Democrat" platform.
Strange you would assume that.
What is your next best guess?"

Dear Mr. X, if you don't embrace the opposite of the "Democrat" platform,
then we may have much in common.
Actually, I believe that we do have much in common.
We both strongly agree in a sense of justice.
I am sure that I am right and you are wrong,
But I might be wrong, but I don't think so.
Just being honest.

And the "war on the wealthy" solutions are more, taking their money and not changing the laws and loopholes and slimy politicians that created this divide.

Look around and tell me, wouldn't you agree that trickle-down economics has failed?


Nope.

Because that is what rob from the rich and give to the poor is.

'Trickle down'.

Take one from group give to another group, so people can go out, and buy more stuff, and them evil corporations STILL make out like bandits.

Only its state sanctioned, and created by the Clintons.

LOL wow.

And accounts for over 2/3 of current federal spending.

What makes social engineering 'trickle down' is because apparently there is a hell of alot of overhead the government keeps, and only a pittances 'trickles down'.

Created by the Clintons? Wow your revisionist history skills are impressive. You do realize it was the neocon Jesus named Ronald Wilson Reagan who initiated supply side economics AKA trickle down economics?

One more shot to the gut - Obama phones are actually Reagan phones.

Wow.

War on Poverty began long before he came in to the picture.

Just in case people need another example of 'Regans trickle down'.

Hey go ask people on SS, and disability how much their colas are.

Better yet ask them how much their monthly checks are.

'Trickle down'.

Like paying DECADES in to a program only to get pocket change in return.

TRICKLE DOWN.

And they 'credit' REAGAN!

LOL.

Oh hell here is another example of 'trickle down' in actions.

Like the 'affordable' Shaft Act.

ALL that others people money ( robbing from the rich so the poor gets free healthcare) made insurance MORE EXPENSIVE !.

Another fine example of 'trickle down' in action:

Those glorious UNIONS.

Create few 'high' paying jobs make people pay the union for the 'priviledge' of having a job.

Make people join or else they don't get a job.

Instead of creating lots of jobs just a handful get created!

TRICKLE DOWN!

That is 'trickle down' in action Heff.

Of the trillions taxes raise people live on a pittance.

I guess Clinton was right it just needed to be clarified.

But that was the elephant in the room. They will never discuss.

Since 'tax breaks don't work' then everyone should give them up.

The evil rich get them.

The middle class gets them.

The poor gets them.

Business gets them.

Hell there isn't anything in this country that does not get tax breaks.

And for the record trickle down is working just fine, and dandy just ask China.

Where billions of dollars are currently being invested.

Biggest reason why that is ?

Is because it is too expensive to do business in this country anymore.

Which is why it is cheaper to buy 'made in China' products made 10,000 miles away, and shipped here than the same things being made 1 mile from where a person lives.

But Clintons comments are especially 'rich' FTW since she is an evil 1% worth over 100 million dollars between her and her 'husband'.

And we all know since the war on poverty began trickle up economics isn't working.

Think about this when people bring up the economy.

When people are spending more money buy corporate products corporations make MORE money.

The CLintons sure do have a hipper rap than the evil right.

But it is just as FASCIST.


Are you smoking rocks ??

Working fine in china ?? Is that the economy you want ??

The average worker makes what? 35 cents an hour ? Or am I being too generous.

You must be on big business side, thats the only way your post makes any sense.

Yo guess who has invested billions of dollars in their economy ?

American business.

That is trickle down in action.

What CLinton was ridiculing.

Why does business leave this country ?

WHY ?

I guess so since some people have no effing concept of what FREE market economics are.

People getting paid for the work they do. NOT based off of what they think they are worth.

Don't believe in banning things oh say like guns that destroys trillions of dollars, and millions of jobs.

Don't believe in regulation either since regulation doesn't stop anything only punishes after the fact, and is a scam the government uses to make trillions off of in fines.

Don't believe in anything the left stands for which is ANTI BUSINESS.

I am on the side of who pays me, and who doesn't make me buy their snip.

Last time I checked that was the Clintons, and her party.

Hillary is as Pro Corporate Fascism as they come.
She was on the board of directors for Walmart right around the time they went China Mart

She is just another Hope and Change Liar.

Vote for her and we get more Trickle Down Economic Policies
Vote for one of the other team and we get more Trickle Down Economic Policies


It sure would be nice to get a Rep in that is Pro American and for all the people of the US rather than Pro NationLess Corporate Fascism.

When she was talking about trinkle down -- I thought she was talking about her face lift/neck or waddle adjustment. She was really talking about financial issues. Damn, she needs to keep her mouth shut or she will loose the elasticity left in her wide eyed public facial expression.

Why anyone believes anything that comes out of this woman's mouth at this point is beyond me.

She will say anything, ANYTHING, even irrelevant diarrhea such as this.

Yes they all do, but at least some of them are likeable. Oh and... BENGHAZI.


Don't forget Hillary's, We came, we saw, he Died, when Gadaffi was murdered.
Regardless of what one feels about Gaddaffi, it certainly shows her moral character at someone else's murdering by laughing and dancing up and down in joy.

No I do not think trickle down economics works for the majority, and I think Hillary Clinton would continue the system that is working for the 1%.


I don't believe that, as most democrats hope to see the survival of the middle class.

You think the republicans have majority's interest at heart? I honestly can't fathom why anyone would believe that. ?


No matter which one of the major parties one votes for, the politician that is elected represents corporate / lobbiests interests, not the interests of the public.


It is worthy of repeating again and again:

The wealthy elite rule America and benefit from it while the average American has little say nor benefits from it.


Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.

In English: the wealthy few move policy, while the average American has little power.
