I can’t believe there was another school shooting. It’s almost as if the thoughts and prayers from the last one did nothing at all….
The hardest part was probably convincing conservatives to participate in science.
A study by Yale psychology professor John Bargh suggests that making people feel safe from harm can change their stances on hot-button issues.
I just think it reveals Republicans for exactly who they are.
“Trickle down economics”, the thought that cutting taxes on the wealthy will create so many new jobs they will pay for themselves, has never worked.
Reagan tried them – they failed
Bush II tried them – they failed
Kansas, Wisconsin, Michigan, and a whole list of other Red States tried them – they failed!
Time and time again the only thing these tax cuts have done is enrich the already extraordinary wealthy while blasting holes in the budgets across the land.
Want to know what works?! Progressive taxation! Since the wealthy hoard most of their money and don’t do anything productive with it, it should be taxed at a higher rate. This extra revenue from the wealthy can then be used to fund education, infrastructure, research, and cutting taxes to working people…like you! Let me repeat, raising taxes on the wealthy means you would pay less!
People who work for a living spend the majority of their income on goods and services. People who work for a living provide goods and services to other people. When people spend more money on goods, that means more jobs! This isn’t rocket science.
When Bill Clinton raised the tax rate a small amount on the wealthiest, the economy boomed.
When Minnesota raised the tax rate a small amount on the wealthiest, the economy boomed.
When California raised the tax rate a small amount on the wealthiest, the economy boomed.
