Response to reACTIONary (Reply #8)

12. Wait a minute. First you say "The reason for ..." and then you say "That's the theory."

 

By your adding "That's the theory," even you are admitting knowing that the so-called reason is not a real reason.

Years of experience has shown us that the trickle-down theory, by which the rich get tax breaks (while making the tax system fairer, simpler to comply with, and simpler to enforce), doesn't work. No other aspect of the trickle-down theory works either.

And, incidentally, after the corporate tax rate is reduced, there is not going to be a layoff of lobbyists. If there are any actual "loopholes" that are eliminated (whatever they are), they lobbyists will just come back and have them put back in.
