Then you must also believe the lie that "Trickle Down" actually creates Middle Class jobs!

Current favored economic theory says trickle down creates jobs. We're in the biggest trickle policies in history. Banksters and financiers are loaded. They'll get around to job creation just as soon as they accumulate enough money with derivative plays and bond shorting.

Job creation is stimulated by demand for additional products/services . There isn't any demand.

Dismantling of U.S. economic infrastructure and the jobs that go with it is on-going. Even Hershey recently announced a shipping of some facilities to Mexico recently. That further reduces consumer demand. Business has no reason to expand production/services. They do that with increasing demand, not falling demand.

That will be solved as soon as Americans learn to make their money on Wall St. rather than unemployment insurance. Consumer demand will rise accordingly. The U.S. has opted for a financial economy rather than a productive one.

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
