It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
"Wealth of Nations," Book V, Chapter II, Part II, Article I, pg.911
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Where I live a super-rich guy had a mansion built on the lake. Many of my friends got employment there building this mansion. It was like a 3 year job. Local building supply stores and landscaping outfits prospered too. Employees of these places stayed employed and took family’s out to local restaurants, bought furniture new cars etc. Trickledown economics, it works. We need rich people, they create jobs
The rich do not spend enough for trickle down to work properly.
During the housing bubble, vastly more people were employeed building homes for the middle class, the people making those homes also went to restaurants, bought cars, bought new furniture. By god the middle class creates jobs as well. As the middle class tends to spend more of their money, they create more jobs as a % of their income then do the rich. Wow, consumption creating jobs who would have guessed.
If the rich spent more, then trickle down would work, but they dont, and as such trickle down does not work
