Response to TreasonousBastard (Reply #4)

5. Eggs Actly.

I came through school under the Laffer curve and Supply Side and didn't *get* the whole shovel ready thing during the Depression - pay someone to dig a hole and pay someone else to fill it in. Looked like a total bureaucratic waste of time and money.

... UNTIL I got into Grad school and was hit upside the head with bottom up pump priming as opposed to top down trickle down.

Now it just pisses me off no end when I see this thoroughly discredited 'top down tax cut' theory being espoused by the people in charge (or hoping to be in charge) of public policy.

Maybe we do need to stock DC with 5 year olds...

At least THAT infrastructure is in place.
