To put it bluntly, the theory of trickle-down economics is based upon the idea that the best way to help the poor and middle class is by allowing the rich to hoard more money.

You Won’t Believe What the GOP’s New Tax Bill Considers ‘Low and Middle Income’

For years, if not decades, Democrats have accused Republicans of being out of touch with reality — and modern times, for that matter.

The Pope’s Visit Puts Into Perspective How Screwed Up the Republican Party Has Become

In case you haven’t heard, Pope Francis is making his big U.S. debut this week. It’s a visit I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. Not only am I a fairly big fan of this pope, but I’ve been extremely interested to see what sort of reaction he’s going to trigger from conservatives […]

Republican Tax Cut Disaster: Kansas’ Economy Continues to Sink After Governor Promised Growth

It’s no secret that the Republican party’s economic ideology is based on tax cuts, commonly referred to as “trickle-down economics.” It’s generally the belief that the more the rich have, the better off the rest of us will be via more jobs, higher wages and a stimulated economy.
