Trump: We need the rich in order to make our country great again

March 16, 2016

Earth to clueless Trump voters. Your billionaire candidate believes in cronyism and the discredited trickle-down theory. He dropped the populism mask last night when he said, “We need the rich in order to make our country great again.”

After 35 years experience with tax cuts for the rich, we have a $19 trillion federal deficit. Nothing trickled down. With the exception of the wealthiest 1%, everyone in this country is worse off financially today than they were in 1980.

If you have any doubts about the efficacy of tax cuts for the rich, just look at the dramatic failures in Michigan, Kansas and Louisiana.

Donald Trump intends to double-down on this failed economic policy. According to recent estimates, his economic plan will increase our deficit by another $10 trillion.

Congratulations Trump voters. You’ve been played by a serial liar, fascist, racist, xenophobic, misogynist rich guy who is laughing at you, all the way to the bank.
