The Republican Party has been feeding us the same tired line for many years now. If we give massive tax cuts to the super-rich, they say, the super rich will create jobs, and the wealth will trickle down to everyone. Of course the wealth has only gushed up, and what has trickled down is inequality and financial crisis. Republicans are desperate to prevent authoritative contradictions to their lies.
Income inequality has not been this bad since before labor unions. Back in the bad old days when children were used as labor for a few cents a day, while the company owners gained a bloated income. The words "job creators" is nothing more than new words for political discourse, it's meant to take the sting out of the punch in gut by these people that do not create jobs, not here not any where. The Nouveau Riche are not industrialists making a product and hiring workers, these people made money by selling junk through hedge funds and the dirty side of the stock market.

The only people making Obscene money are slave wage employers like Wal Mart, Big Oil, & money Launderers like Wall $treet Bankers...and NONE of them are embarra$$ed by their unholy gains ! And none are prosecuted for the Unlawful ways & means used to get it! “There is not conclusive evidence, however, to substantiate a clear relationship between the 65-year steady reduction in the top tax rates and economic growth,” the report stated. “However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution.”

An example of what can happen when Congress doesn't want researchers and scientists to express opinions, make recommendations and/or share their results and findings that aren't what the congressman or congresswoman wants to believe? Facts and findings are biased because they don't support myths?

You know, they make ankle motion detectors for those on house arrest and such, I think they should make ankle liar detectors for all Repukelicans and save the fact checkers some time.

In the New York Times, Jared Bernstein said “This sounds to me like a complete political hit job and another example of people who don’t like the results and try to use backdoor ways to suppress them,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like this, and frankly, it makes me worried.”
From Alternet — "Since Republicans began instituting supply-side policies under President Reagan, growth has lagged and income inequality has surged as the wealthiest Americans make more money while paying less in taxes."
Corruption Inc aka Republican/Teabagger party SOP — If it doesn't say what we want it to say, if it doesn't support our views — get rid of it! It is wrong. The government is fudging the numbers and influencing the report.
Sometimes, the truth hurts! What a sorry state of affairs. The losers in this American debacle — the people! . . . the 99%!
Keep the report as it is! Don't change it. Keep it in circulation! Corruption Inc be damned.

How to know when a Republican is speaking the truth - when he shoots his cuffs, he is speaking the truth; when he fiddles with his tie, he is speaking the truth; when he eyes up the exit, he is speaking the truth - BUT WHEN HE OPENS HIS MOUTH - NEVER......!!!
If trickle down economics worked we would never have had the many crashes and depressions of the last few hundred years. Trickle down economics is Balderdash!
