Justin, the theory of Trickle Down Economics is where a business sees it's taxes reduced, in the expectation that the money will be used to grow the business and employ more people. I'm not defending it, I'm just explaining it. What I described is called building a business and finding so…

The wealthy do not bury their money in the ground. They put it to work building businesses (sometimes going broke in the process), employing people and generally creating more wealth for many people including themselves * the horror of it all!!*. Anyone who believes that wealthy people ho…
