The debacle in Wisconsin has brought our country to a new low. Conservative financial policies aren't working. If you examine them (Reaganomics, trickle down, supply side and now free market) you will find they are all the same thing.
Give big business tax dollars/incentives and deregulate them. This will improve our country.
Somehow giving all the resources to financially astute (i.e. greedy) people will cause more money to flow because business is such a wonderfully productive thing. Did you know that the vast majority of businesses fail? This mantra has been unquestioned for 30 years.
Our economy and quality of life have continually slid downward. What proof do we have that the conservative economic plan has improved life for anyone except big business and their investors.
Never miss a local story.
What is really interesting is that this economic policy is the same one that led to the crash in 1929 and the subsequent Great Depression. We resolved that mess through funding our government and using tax dollars to fund services for the people. It would seem that paying taxes gives you less money. Check out the stats. When we have a strong government we have a better economy.
More people have decent jobs and enough to live comfortably on. When the corporate world is allowed to run amok, pillage and plunder, our economy sinks, jobs go overseas and we don’t even have adequate fire and police protection.
So I ask you to question the conservative economic policy.
