Democrats like to deride the "trickle down" economics of the Republicans. They claim nothing makes it down to the people at the bottom. I wonder about that because people at the bottom economically seem to have a lot. They all have color TV sets, DVD players, iPods, etc. Barack Obama and the Democrats want replace "trickle down" with the Robin Hood Plan, where they equalize things by taking from the rich and giving to the poor. That does not seem like a good plan to me because it will do nothing to improve economic growth. It might be of value if poor people were so bad off that they did not have enough to eat, so were unable to do anything productive. Actually the poor have so much to eat that liberals are concerned about them being too fat. I wonder if Democrats have thought about how John Kennedy's "a rising tide lifts all boats" is closer to "trickle down" than it is to "Robin Hood."
