Trickle-down economics

editorial cartoon in which a person with outstretched hands says I'm waiting for the Trump trickle-down, a second person in similar stance says I'm waiting for the Bush trickle-down, and a third says I'm waiting for the Reagan trickle-down

Trickle-down economics is an outright lie. None of the wealth trickles down. No new jobs are created. Nothing.

It is a money grab, and the wealthy *never let go*. They will tell you this to your face, on camera; they have no intentions of reinvesting their new wealth into anything but their pockets- not even their own businesses.

Trickle-down is how the very rich keep getting richer, the poor keep getting poorer, and the middle class is disappearing altogether.

“Today, the top 1 percent of households own more wealth than the bottom 90 percent combined.”

<<<< That is hard for me to even fathom. And yet the rich demand more.

How foolish is Congress going to look when their wealthy donors don’t need them anymore.  Why would the super rich continue to donate to politicians after the politicians hand them all the power?
