    Default If "trickle down" doesn't work

    Can someone explain the stimulus stuff to me.

    it's that thing where they go to the mint, hit print on the money machine, and send it on out to the "less fortunate". Who, in turn, then send it on back up to Walmart, Dillards, Casinos, etc.

    Aray that is not trickle down....trinkle down is where you don't make a rich guy pay taxes so that he will add on to his factory and make jobs and then his employees go spend it at WalMart, etc. and he builds him a bigger house on his tax savings.

    Don't see a thing wrong with your version of trickle down except the so-called rich pay the majority of taxes brought in to the Govt. 50+% of the working population doesn't pay a dime in Federal taxes. Many also receive a so-called Earned Income Tax credit giving them additional refunds of monies they didn't even pay into the system in the first place. Hmmm, I wonder where those monies came from? How about from the rich that actually pay taxes!!

    HE ASKED FOR AN EXPLANATION OF THE STIMULUS.... NOT TRICKLE DOWN. Perhaps our reading skills are a bit impaired this afternoon.

    You keep referring to the low income earners....I'm referring to the middle class....but it appears you want to tax the guy making $8-$10 so Romney can have a bigger tax cut. Why do you want to do this?

    A large part of the stimulus was given to the states so they could pay their bills so policemen and fireman would still be on the job and they spent the money and stimulated the economy....see you act as if the stimulus was suppose to made our economy strong...it was filling big holes by design. With the exception of Texas, the rest of the country would have been sh>t out of luck if it had not been for that wellfare. But the way all of you speak, you would have wanted governments across the country to fail....might check and see how much your state got.
