How many decades have we been trying trickle down? Three or four at least, across several GOP, and Democrat administrations, and all we have to show for it is the actual fiscal situation that we are in now. Which is, of course, awful, despite nearly full employment: tremendous national debt; horribly lacking investments in critical infrastructure. Virtually all state, and local municipalities, suffering from ever diminishing revenue sources, so that most of the services that government is supposed to provide and help us with (education, health care, extreme weather event destruction and restoration, etc) are as missing from action as that supposed credit fairy.
And then, of course, is the other side of the equation. Their power masters have grown exponentially in their ability to not only influence elections through the new insanity of campaign financing laws, they spread their reach and influence through ever widening corporate concentration of ownership so that not only do they control whether you will get hired or not (wherever, for whatever wage), they expand their ability to control all means of information dissemination so that the only reality you know is the one they want you to know; whereupon, certainly, you then become as apparently easy to convince of things such as credit fairies, or that trickle down might actually work if just just continue to wish for it strongly enough. So if you are wondering why these people continue with spreading this horse feces wonder no more.
