    The easiest way to answer your question is to look at the history of tax cuts. Tax cuts to the middle/working classes tend to benefit the economy more, because they are more likely to spend the money thus stimulating the economy. This isn't true with tax cuts to the wealthy who already have more than they spend.

    I would disagree. The history of America has always been that those who have benefited the most pay back more.

    Money is being redistributed upwards at an alarming rate due to Govt. policies. Why doesn't Govt. have the duty to slow it down? It is unsustainable. Even if we didn't need the money we would be foolish not to.

    Your flawed notion fails to account for the fact that the govt should not be redistributing wealth.
    Or do two wrongs make a right in your book?

    LOL.....you obviously like a Marie Antoinette lifestyle.....without clue to what the working poor do. Most people living in poverty work, many 2-3 jobs. So much for your "too lazy to feed themselves" propaganda talking points. You might want to get out a little more.
