Dick: So what's five minus two, Sally? Sally: Uh... three? Dick: Wrong! Under Gov. Brownback, it's seven! Hi, folks! Trickle-down Dick here, explaining supply-side economics to a Kansas schoolgirl whose final weeks of classes were cancelled when Gov. Brownback's tax cuts for the rich blew a hole in the state's budget. You see, Sally, Kansas just can't afford to educate you in the middle of an important economic experiment! Supply-side tax cuts may have an unbroken record of failure, but that's only because we've never been patient enough! If we just give the rich enough money and time, sooner or later, less tax revenue will turn into more tax revenue! Sally: But isn't that a logical fallacy? Dick: Whoa! That's quite enough school for you, young lady!
