    Are you kidding? The Reps main interest are the rich and Big companies that outsource jobs Americans could do here, but they rather have chinese do them because they are cheaper and the rich can then line their pockets with more money. Regular Republicans think that eventually it is going to start trickling down, still waiting - hasn't happened!

    SOMETHING may trickle down, but it won't be money or jobs, it will be like living in the basement of an outhouse...

    so why do the uber-wealthy often support the dems and why are most of the richest senators Dems?

    Nothing moderate about you, just total liberalism at its worst. Most people have goals and dreams of becoming the very people you now seem to hate. What happened, didn't make it? Like far too many you don't have a clue as to how our economy works and that over 80% is made up of small businesses that you and other liberals seem to ignore but instead you focus on the very few that damage the reputation of the rich. You do know that charities depend on the rich? That people looking to become rich depend on? That the elderly shareholders rely on to supplement social security. Instead of focusing on the good, you want to promote the radical left ideology of redistribution of wealth and social justice portraying anyone that has more than you as evil and unethical. One of these days you too will grow up and realize what a fool liberalism has made of you. I did.

    As I recall you have done very well for yourself. Are you that much smarter than everyone else? If you can do it, why can't others? Trickle down worked for you.

    now he's taking credit for it

    this morning: President Obama takes credit for compromise - Abby Phillip - POLITICO.com

    he should, he's president

    it's the bush/obama/clinton/mcconnell/boehner plan

    otherwise known as TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH

    deal with it

    No, trickle down was meant for those who are willing to settle for less. A large portion of the middle class does exactly that. They aim low in life, and hit the bulls-eye. They think they are doing well til the fertilizer hits the ventilator, both of which were paid for with credit cards.
    I have 3 years of technical education from the Navy, and 3 years of college that I didn't really need. I want more out of life than the average person. And I got it, but it was 30 years of saving, investing, and living well within my means. Plus I married well. That is a big part of it. If you marry a "shopper", you are in deep doodoo....
    No, I am not smarter than every one else, just smart enough to be above average ...

    Trickle down creates opportunities not guarantees. You took advantage of the opportunities, others haven't and are waiting for someone else to do it for them. Liberalism appeals to those people, wonder why it appeals to you?

    Those willing to settle for less so the rich can settle for more?

    How can you speak for a large portion? Not to mention you have not addressed the growing poor class.

    I have 3 years of technical education from the Navy, and 3 years of college that I didn't really need. I want more out of life than the average person. And I got it, but it was 30 years of saving, investing, and living well within my means. Plus I married well. That is a big part of it.
    "More out of life" What do you mean? As in you expect more or as in you just want more? Either way you should be happy and grateful for what you have and if you aren't in comfort work for it. Material goods aren't everything and if you are talking about relationships and meaning in life, then excuse my ignorance, but I have no idea what that has to do with trickle down.

    If you marry a "shopper", you are in deep doodoo....
    What if you don't know they are a "shopper" when you marry them and once you realize you are already in love and can't imagine divorcing them?
