Jeff Carlson: The Insanity of Trickle Down And False GOP Governance

Friend of the TPI...Jeff Carlson

It is shameful that the media, or conservatives for that matter, will not admit that Republicans are not deluded in thinking that turning over the wealth of the nation to the rich, Wall Street, and corporations will ever create economic prosperity for the masses.

It is always stunning that Republicans have any support for their economic agenda among the population, at any level. Even in states with Republican legislatures and governors suffering monumental economic failures from pro-corporate policies advanced by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) that keep wages low, slash safety nets, cut education, and impose socially conservative policies, voters dependably flock to conservative candidates. If the 2014 midterms were any indication, it appears that residents in failed Republican states are either dirt stupid, or truly believe that revenue-killing tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy driving spending cuts and debt are the population’s path to prosperity.

Kansas has received its share of attention for its epic trickle down failure typical of conservative economics, and it is duly warranted. However, the governor of Kansas has not been tapped by the Koch brothers as their preferred Republican presidential candidate for 2016.

That distinction goes to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker who has his state’s financial demise keeping pace with Kansas for the top Republican economic failure. Hopefully Americans are paying attention to the portent of another massive national economic failure if Republicans control Congress and the White House according to the disaster in Wisconsin.
