The Economy is based on Demand for Goods and Services.
Additional demand is what tells Business to go out and Hire New Employees.
No Additional Demand, No New Jobs.
Give a million dollar tax break to someone that makes 10 million a Year.
That extra million ends up in a stock portfolio of some other investment.
The Velocity of that million dollars is Zero.
New Demand is Zero.
Give that same Million to the People at the bottom.
That Million dollars goes BACK into the Economy at the Speed of Light.
It gets spent on Food, Housing, Gas, utilities.
The Velocity of that Million is Very High.
Every place that money is spent sees New Demand.
The New Demand At the BOTTOM creates NEW Jobs.
Tax Cuts for the Wealthy do NOT.

And if you think that's confusing, wait until you read what PDiddie at Brains and Eggs said about Greg Abbott's rose petals and Joe Arpaio's pink panties. Lewisville Texan Journal looks at Republican candidate for HD 106, Pat Fallon's residence, and addresses whether he committed voter fraud by voting from an address where he apparently did not live. At TexasKaos, lightseeker asks Could the Education Cuts be the beginning of the End for Texas Republican? Check out the details. Neil at Texas Liberal endorsed Sean Hubbard in the Democratic primary for the open U.S. Senate seat.
