    I try to spend my money on the one I feel deserves it most!
    … the one mearest and dearest to me!
    … the one I love the most!
    ME!

    Ah . . . but it does work, unlike trickle up poverty of ’’share the wealth"!

    Well, when does it start working? After all, it’s been over thirty years and I haven’t seen any of it yet..

    I, too, haven’t seen anything “trickle down,” except for contempt of the average American by the obscenely-wealthy.

    …and there isn’t enough tricklin’ down to trickle up

    That is exactly why “trickle down” works. When spending, a person employs other people, every time. New stuff, fancy meals, travel….all employ other people. Read economist Dr. Walter E. Williams books and learn.

    Trickle down IS the way economics works. It works that way in every so called “system”, from Marxism, where not much trickles down, through free market capitalism, where lots trickles down.

    All that money he spends on himself buying things, does it not create jobs for people to make those things? does those jobs not give those people money?

    You act as if he is giving money to buy things that are made out of thin air. If things were made out of thin air without human involvement then I would agree with you, because no one is getting jobs created or earning income that way.

    Every item ever made, gives someone a job to work, and an income to live. The trick is we need to make sure the jobs are American and not outsourced.

    It is really impossible to compete on a world scale when we have labor laws in the USA and countries like China and India have child slave labor that has little or no cost associated with making something.

    To be fair tariffs should be in place except for countries that have similar labor laws.

    For those who doubt child slave labor, I used to be with you, until I watched a documentary on it with little kids asking us to stop buying things because their parents sold them to a sweat shop in India and they’ll never be free until they buy their way out of it, or it goes out of business.

    Course that was two years ago, may not be true anymore.

    Anyone who has ever had a job in the private sector where others buy your products or services, has seen trickle down economics. Trickle down isn’t a get rich scheme it is merely get people jobs scheme so they can live.

    If others do not buy your product, or services then you have no customers and thus no trickle down.

    Oops, your caps lock musta got stuck.
    Since you’re one of the 1%, maybe you should start hiring people. Bush sure gave you enough tax breaks to create more jobs.
    That is how it works, isn’t it?
