Trump's Tax Plan (Trickle-down Trump)

If you are old enough to recall Ronald Reagan's insemination of Supply Side economics (trickle down) into the heart of GOP ideology, you shouldn't be at all surprised about what Trump is promulgating as his "tax plan." The tax plan is a mere rehash of past GOP economic policy which almost leads to a total economic collapse.

Two MSNBC news segments best state a case against a return to Trickle-down economics. 

I offered two segments, but there is more. If you are an informant geek or a High Information Voter (HIV) MSNBCs Morning Joe Show included an extensive segment with great detail and relevant comment about Trump's "sly of hand" tax cuts.

Trump's tax cut will not only offer a significant tax benefit to the uber-wealthy it could launch the nation on another path to economic oblivion. Especially if we consider other GOP policy regarding "regulation."

Now, take a look at the same chart with specific direction to compare two out data points.

Compare these two figures<br />
If you review a comparison chat of income growth from 1980 through the subprime Bubble burst of the Bush Era, the effects of trickle-down are stark and frankly, "in your face."
The superrich have grabbed the bulk of the past three decades' gains.<br />

If the chart about isn't descriptive enough, check out the is graphic.

Trickle-down (supply side) economics is the most stifling economic measure Republicans had ever administered against the US middle class and lower-income citizens.

Ryan Won the VP Debate? CNN, really? The Math Does Not Add-UP

CNN {Credibility Necessary Now}

CNN and certain other media, are indicating Paul Ryan won the Vice President Debate.  Conversely, Fox News has made no claim of a VP Debate victory for Ryan.

I wonder if the following contributes to Fox News' reality check on Ryan's performance.

During a segment of last nights debate, the Moderator probed Paul Ryan about mathematics associated with his positions, proposals, and political rhetoric.  Ryan claimed that six sources assessed his proposals as mathematically valid. Ryan clear claims six sources.

How about a look and listen on his six sources MSNBC, The Ed Show.  We ask that you pay particular attention to the last two minutes of the video.

Six sources and at least three to four of the six sources are blogs.  Paul Ryan is proving to be as big and effective a lair as his hopeful boss, Mitt Romney.

Is there any wonder Joe Biden did not hesitate to show his amazement at the extent to which Paul Ryan sat and lied through the full 90 minutes?

The Progressive Influence and other progressive website developer fully recognize that CNN's standing among the top the cable network news channels is consistently a 'bottom dweller".  We tolerate the network based on the need for a network that sits between Fox News (Not a news channel in any way) and MSNBC (Progressive news outlet).  We recognize the need, but the need no longer meet via CNN. The network obviously vying  for higher ratings, and their quick announcement that Paul Ryan won the VP Debate is a classic example.  The proclamation was nothing shy of an advertisement for Right-wing viewers. 

If my assertion seems far-fetched, notice the ridiculousness of the CNN claim of a Ryan win. Fox News did not and has not made such a claim.  Fox News factual non-claim places CNN declaration squarely in the realm of Anderson Cooper's "RIDICULIST".
