I believe the "trickle down" came from the leftist media back in the 80s to demonize and disparage Reagan. I don't know who the person was who coined it but I remember hearing it first back then. Same for Reaganomics.

If I recall Teddy Kennedy had money in off shore tax sheltered accounts too. But that's ok cause Kennedy wore the Holy Triple Crown: liberal, democrat, Kennedy. The only thing he couldn't do was teach a woman to walk on water.

The Clintons also had (have?) money offshore in the Cayman Islands.

John Kerry married a very wealthy woman, some of whose investments I am sure are also in foreign stock.

Nobody on the Left made a peep about that that I can recall...

John Kerry also purchased a very expensive yacht earlier this year. In Massachusetts, it would be taxed much higher that it would be if he kept in in Rhode Island, which he did to avoid the taxes. He may have finally paid the tax and moved the yacht to Massachusetts after it was disclosed that he was acting as a Liberal hypocrite.

The tax was ~ $500,000. If John has to pay this amount annually, he might have to get an annulment from the former Mrs Heinz and find an even richer wife.

Anyone who wants to study the tricks of propaganda rhetoric has a rich source of examples in the statements of President Barack Obama. On Monday, July 9th, for example, he said that Republicans "believe that prosperity comes from the top down, so that if we spend trillions more on tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, that that will somehow unleash jobs and economic growth."

Let us begin with the word "spend." Is the government "spending" money on people whenever it does not tax them as much as it can? Such convoluted reasoning would never pass muster if the mainstream media were not...
