The Romney/Ryan Plan – The classic shell game explained (voodoo economics)

The Romney/Ryan Plan is the same old trickle down propaganda that hides the real truth.  The truth is that expansion of the economy comes by economic stimulus not by giving the wealthy tax breaks.

During the Ronald Reagan years Republicans touted how “tax breaks to the wealthy” would grow our economy.  But the real stimulus to the economy at the time was Ronald Reagan’s “STAR WARS DEFENSE INITIATIVE” and Reagan’s GOVERNMENT EXPANSION that ultimately added to our Nation’s deficit.

The reality is that Republicans play a sort of shell game with our economy.  They put government money into the economy and then take it back out again in the form of tax breaks to the wealthiest.  Then they portray their graft as the cause of economic growth in the first place instead of the real cause, “a stimulus in government spending.”

Republicans like to hide this economic stimulus in military spending and in wars.

The Romney/Ryan Plan looks to take out of the economy $5 trillion dollars in tax cuts by putting into the economy $2 trillion in additional government spending on the military.  

These numbers don’t add up do they?  So either they are going to cut government programs in addition to the tax cuts or they are adding to the deficit like Ronald Reagan did.

Trickle down; voodoo economics is in reality the classic “SHELL GAME”.

Take from here and it shows up there.

It’s magic…

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
