Mr. Blunt and Cranky has been saying that the Supply-Side Voodoo Economics theory that “Republicans” have been pushing for the past few decades is a bunch of mule muffins, and has further challenged adherents thereof to provide impartial proof otherwise. Thus far, no Pro-Trickle proof has been presented.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Research Service (said Congress being under the effective control of the Repubs, mind you) has just put out a report saying that the Reagan/Bush/Romney plan does not work, and has never worked. The first link is a summary news story; the second is the actual report, suitable for OCD data freaks like your humble correspondent.

Here’s the money quote from the Congressional Research Service:

“The results of the analysis suggest that changes over the past 65 years in the top marginal tax rate and the top capital gains tax rate do not appear correlated with economic growth. The reduction in the top tax rates appears to be uncorrelated with saving, investment, and productivity growth. The top tax rates appear to have little or no relation to the size of the economic pie.

However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution”.

All y’all got that? The Romney/Ryan plan will do nothing to create jobs or boost the economy. It WILL, however, make those two rich f***s even richer, along with their cronies. They are pushing a plan that will screw us all, while lining their own pockets.

You might not call that criminal behavior –  politicians running on a platform that enriches themselves at the expense of the nation they profess to “serve”. This writer does. And if you vote for them, you’re just as guilty as they are.
