  •  The 'rich' don't always vote their self-interest. (4+ / 0-)

    Take a hypothetical couple with a 500K+ stock portfolio.  Does the stock market perform better under democratic or republican administrations?

    I think the long term evidence is there to support the fact that the market performs better under democrats.

    Trickle down economics doesn't work in the macro-economic sense.  Bottom up economics works because businesses prosper more when the average American has disposable income.

    Romney and the 1% may be better off voting republican, but upper middle class Americans with a modest+ stock portfolio should be voting democrat.
