    The reason the republican trinity of trickle-down, dereg, and privatize continues to be worshipped even after thirty years of the proven problems with this economic theory, is that very wealthy interests continue to benefit from these programs, and continue to advocate for them.

    The people who these wealthy interests advocate to are our law-makers, who also receive financial gifts from these wealthy interests.

    So there are very many and large financial incentives to contiue these programs, even if the programs don't work as advertised.  (The programs work just fine in aiding the transfer of wealth from the have-nots to the haves, but are of course sold to the gullible public as creating prosperity for all.)

    No one of consequence is going to bury this unholy trinity.  They would sooner kill the goose that lays the golden egg.
