    "Sam Brownback, the Republican Governor of Kansas, was going to do a grand experiment in Kansas. He implemented trickle-down economics by slashing taxes on the rich to "stimulate the economy." Well nothing was stimulated, and now Kansas is suffering from cuts in education, highways and infrastructure, and more. The state added almost no new jobs. Only the rich gained."


    trickle down economics doesn't work. not as advertised anyway. (it does work for who it is really intended to work for, the already rich). this is but one example.

    If the right wing says trickle down economics works, then trickle down economics works!

    We need to keep the money out of the hands of the widows and orphans, and into the hands of the major corporations who know how best to manage it. 😠

    Trickle down economics is supposed to be more about giving tax breaks to major producers such as large corporations that create jobs so they can create more jobs, not just about giving tax cuts to wealthy individuals.

    Whether Sam Brownback agrees with or understands this is a different question.
