The right wing has this idea that if you send a shovel full of money to rich folks, the top 2% income earners, that they will go on a spending spree and hire lots of us working folks. For what jobs, nobody knows. But since they have extra money, they will hire people anyway. It is just what rich people do when they have spare cash. Or not.
Of course, what makes more sense is that the 2% got rich by being greedy bastards. They want to get all that money and keep it. So, we send them some money and they bury it in the backyard (which happens to be in Aruba).
The obvious answer to how to get the 2% to really work and hire is to give the money to someone else. Middle class people who are not rich have not developed that "greedy bastard, bury it in the backyard" attitude are perfectly willing to spend the money. Give money to them and the 2% will fall over themselves trying to figure out how to get that money from the middle class into their own holes in the ground.
Its a win-win plan. The 2% want the money, and eventually, they will end up with it. We just have to make them work for it, and in the process, the middle class get to spend it. And many of the middle class get jobs working for the rich bastards as they try to get that money.
Jobs. Now we have a second level of benefit. Even as the 2% try to pull our money out of our pockets, they have to give some back to the employees who help them execute their schemes. That means more money in middle class pockets that the 2% still want to get back. And try they will.
So this is real stimulus. The trick is, you have to tell the rich bastards where you put the money, so they can go get it.
