“Trickle down” economics work by removing barriers to investment—meaning that the rich splash a lot of money around and the effects of that reach ordinary guys like you or me. All well and good—until the super-rich decide that investing is a fools’ game, because hoarding is where it’s at. Suddenly, the trickle down model inverts, and the economy becomes like a giant vacuum-cleaner, sucking money from the middle class’s pockets and dumping it into Mr Burns’ bank account. And thanks to things called tax havens, there it stays—forever.
In sum: unless a handful of greedy fools start sharing their loot, America as we know it may well be done for.
Number 2... Making "me" pay for their mistakes... Oh yeah, how much in tax payer dollars goes towards Planned Parenthood again?
Correction: "trickle up" poverty.
