If You Have Been Reading This Rant At All, You Have Proved To Yourself That Trickle Down Economics Is Total, Total Crap!!
In today's New York Times, Paul Krugman points out why that particular delusion among Republicans is, in absolute fact, dangerous for all of us.
And then there’s the matter of using evidence to shape economic policy. You may have read about the recent study from the Congressional Research Service
finding no empirical support for the dogma that cutting taxes on the
wealthy leads to higher economic growth. How did Republicans respond? By suppressing the report.
On economics, as in hard science, modern conservatives don’t want to
hear anything challenging their preconceptions — and they don’t want
anyone else to hear about it, either.
This is getting to be a scary place!!!
