Who remembers Bush being continually slammed for his attempts at putting money back in the pockets of companies so they could employ more people, and therefore allow those people opportunity to spend more and keep the economy rolling? Who remembers the derisive word used? "Trickle-down Economics." What an idiot, that Bush, thinking that the money will trickle down from companies to employees to companies.
Let's consider how this new brilliant piece of dog-shtimulus coming down the pike will stimulate the ecomony.
Question: How will giving money to these government programs help stimulate the economy?
Answer: You give the money to the government programs. They give the money to needy companies. Needy companies can then employ and pay needy employees. Needy employees can then buy stuff, thereby stimulating the economy!
So...Obama and his cronies aren't for trickle down economics, but they're for trickle-trickle down...? That's so much better!
