It's difficult to understand your point, RJBJr, because there is no such thing as "trickle down" economics. This is a political appellation, akin to "death panels," and is, in fact, evidence of the media bias that blocks the Republican message from getting through to voters.
We all agree that the Republicans have lost and need a better political strategy. But we're not buying your transparent liberal politicking here in response to the above column about poverty.
By the way, are you old enough to remember Jack Kemp? There could be a lot less poverty if it weren't for Dems.
