    Once the GOP managed to sell the rest of the country on the notion that trickle-down economics improves the lot of the non-wealthy, the floodgates opened.

    Tax cuts for corporations, internationals and the wealthy, along with "free trade" agreements and the slashing of social spending became good for the economy.  After all, "they created jobs."
