Exactly. The leftists mock trickle down economics but supported Piglosi when she said that keeping people on unemployment and welfare stimulate the economy. If that's not a definition of trickle down, I don't know what is.
But you see, according to leftists, trickle down works that way, just not with businesses.
Welfare funding as does unemployment benefits are concepts from the Social Security Act, Middle class wages support those programs. Trickle down economic foster a retarded idea that reduced taxes on the top income earners produce and inspire economic opportunity which falls down into the middle class.

Trickle down economics is basically an idea that the middle and low income Americans can pick up the crumbs to survive that fall from the dining table of the more affluent in society. A third world concept where the wealthy has no part in the social contract of America.

States rights is state sovereignty. Maybe you should look up the word sovereignty. That is the reason Congress crafted and states crafted the current constitution.
Sovereignty, complete independence and self government. That's not what state's rights are.

Congress crafted what?

Read the prefix to the bill of rights. The states did craft the constitution and expressed a desire to add further restrictions in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its (federal government) powers.

The stimulus package funded more than 475 Billion in Small Business and Middle Class wage earner tax cuts,$250 Billion funded State and Federal infrastructure projects, companies that won contracts hired labor to fulfill labor needs to undertake those projects.

Upon the signing of that stimulus, the job loss inherited from George Bush completely reversed fr to expand and has every month since March 2012,

The economy went from shrinking and stagnant to expanding and more than $28 Trillion in new wealth since has been created on the markets reversing the devastating $17 Trillion loss from personal money market accounts during the economic and financial collapse of 2008

If you receive 401 or other money market statement there's no way you can say since March 2009 the money markets have not restored the loss funding that disappeared from individual accounts in the 4 months to close 2008, your balance should have more than doubled in some cases tripled depending on the index your manager has your account distributed into..

You know, DumBama wanted to give money to local communities such as states, teachers unions, construction unions and so forth, and those few entities that received help were supposed to trickle down to the other employment of our economy. It didn't work, but the leftists supported that kind of so-called trickle down.
Green energy the same way...... so they said. They told us that by going green, it would cause massive employment that would spread throughout the rest of the US. Instead, it costs taxpayers billions for failed projects and green companies that went under.
Hey! I just thought of something! Maybe that's how they know trickle-down doesn't work! LOL!

Job growth began to expand in march 2010, not 2012 as a result of that 2009 stimulus.

The 2009 stimulus in conjunction with spending cuts are responsible for cutting the deficits George Bush left in 2009 from $1.4 Trillion to 2013 $650 Billion.

Reduced budget deficits are unfamiliar with the Republican theory according to Dick Cheney that "Deficits don't matter" so those who support the republican fiscal theory don't acknowledge these historic deficit reduction measures and the affect on the US Budget.

Complete independence to subjugate constitutional protections is exactly what Southern States wanted, and cause of their insurrection that lead to the civil war.

Congress crafted the US Constitution to replace the Article of Confederation in Philadelphia. Both the Continental Congress and later US Congress were representatives elected in their respective States. to Congress. The Constitution was sent back to the States for ratification and amendments for adoption.

What some states expressed and what passed in the States are two different arguments. Today States still create legislation that the Federal Supreme Court have to reject because as have been shown States tend to violate the letter of the Constitution and violate individual protections guaranteed each citizen.

One of the original copies of the US Constitution is in Philadelphia at the Constitution Center,where it was crafted, and ratified. There is no such prefix to the Amendments...

There is a preamble to the Constitution, which may be the problem with your understanding of the Constitution.

Which reads: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America

There are 7 Articles broken into various section followed by the Amendments.

The buffoons now argue the business model was valid but just didn't go far enough because once again the Republicans,"cheaped out,"by not allowing enough new debt to be created to off-set the old debt.

has worked well for me, might have worked for you as well if you would have actually looked for a job. Or maybe you were applying for jobs from poor people?

Or maybe if the "green" interests" and the job killers in the demorat party hadn't driven so many manufacturers out of business here.

But you're fine on welfare and food stamps, right?

Unlike so many lbs on here you can at least string some coherent thoughts together, so tell us about this "ideal" economic system you envision and exactly how it would work.

there were no "shovel ready" jobs , Obumbles admitted it and got a laugh from the dolts in the audience. The $85 billion a month is going to fatcats and mega banks, there is no trickle down, no jobs., no nothing.

Reminder, the mortgage meltdown was caused 100% by the usual demorat something for nothing policies. And yes the very people you now champion in high finance and Wall Street were up to their necks profiting from it.

According to all libs they were bad then, yet now you cheer for them? Libs are confused, but I can understand why, the markets are the ONLY positive thing you can brag about, even tho it's a result of a massive infusion of borrowed/printed money for the already well to do.

Deny it..

Does you employer hire and create jobs because of some sense of social responsibility, or because it offers him an opportunity to multiply his profits and earnings?

Why would anyone elect to create a job that doesn't enhance their profitability? Consumer and market demand creates jobs.

So what you are saying is that when you inspire job creators to create jobs, it's a failed concept, but if you inspire people to stay home, collect money, and then spend that money on food and necessities, it's a successful economic plan?
What am I missing here?
If we took all the social leaches, moved them to an island somewhere far, far away, our economic conditions in our country could only improve. On the other hand, if we took all our wealthy people, move them to an island far, far away, our country would collapse.
