Some people hate trickle-down economics. They speak of its “failure,” its “victims,” and they claim that it “doesn’t work.” On the other hand, some people like and endorse it. Before we get into the arguments for and against it, the question is: what is it?
“You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,” Barack Obama once said about John McCain’s policies, claiming they were basically the same old Republican ideas just dressed up to look new and centrist. Could he also have been hinting about the way McCain “dressed up” his campaign by choosing Sarah Palin as a running mate? It’s not necessarily wrong to think so, but does that mean that Obama was also calling Palin a pig?
