    trickle down economics has always been that, a trickle.

    This is a total misrepresentation of supply side economics. Of course, I shouldn’t expect any less…

    They must be either bankers or politicians.

    It’s a pretty twisted mindset which equates letting someone keep their hard earned money with theft. Especially since even after a tax cut the rich are paying a far higher percentage of income than the poor. Miller’s got some funny characters, but he knows about as much about economics as Rosie ODonnell knows about metallurgy.

    obi-wandreas: if the ones making more than 120,000 paid the same percentage in payroll taxes and were not allowed such outrageous deductions or shelter their money i might agree with you…

    Remembering that rich folks pay more but they also take much much more. They not only often don’t pay at all (GE, for example, pays almost nothing in taxes), but they receive huge government subsidies – and have for years.

    Americans - rich Americans - traditionally pay less than nearly all other industrialized nations yet whine about it more. Why? Because they are greedy. They make vast amounts of money that have little to do with what they actually do – and why? Because they and their friends make the rules.

    By the way, conservatives claim this is a Christian country. If that is the case, then we are all obligated to serve the poor and possess less. Need I cite all the Gospel passages? Of course, they don’t really want a Gospel based society because that would undermine their amassing obscene amounts of money.

    Obi-Wandreas, who among us knows what Rosie O’Donnell does in her spare time? :)

    As for supply-side economics, the idea was: tax the wealthy less, they’ll spend more, and eventually everyone will benefit – hence, “trickle-down”. But “hard-earned” applies only to people who actually labor to do something useful to others and get paid for it, which pretty much leaves the wealthy out of it. No doubt they “earn” what they get, since someone else is willing to pay it, so that someone must somehow be getting what they think is value received…that’s how a market works. But “hard”? Please.

    Over a century ago, William Jennings Bryan remarked, “No one ever made a million dollars honestly.” It was a bit of a broad statement, since he was running for office at the time, but it should give one pause to think.

    And before you ask, yes, I *am* an economist by profession.
