They have totally avoided that term “trickle down,” as it has grown great negative connotations since we know that it didn’t work for Ronald Reagan, it didn’t work for George W. Bush, and it won’t work for Donald Trump. It is economically sound reasoning in a normal world, which is why Sen. Orrin Hatch got so emotional over it (“Sen. Hatch to Dems saying tax cuts are for rich: ‘Bull crap,’” Nov. 19). He actually believes his own rhetoric. The truth be told, in a highly partisan career politician government where everyone can be bought by the highest bidder and the need to protect and grow ones base to justify their own existence, it is impossible not to spend any benefit before it happens. Thus killing any soundness to the logic.
