Scott Walker’s Trickle Down Experiment Is Crippling Wisconsin Economy – The Ring Of Fire

Scott Walker, Republican governor of Wisconsin,
Koch brothers favorite politician and failed presidential candidate, is continuing to destroy
the great state of Wisconsin. When he first came into office, he enacted massive tax cuts
for the top 1%. In fact, 78% of those tax cuts went to people making more than $1 million
a year. The idea, as usual with all Republican economics, was that if we cut taxes for the
top 1% in Wisconsin they’re going to turn around and invest that money right back into
the state. Therefore we’re going to have job growth,
we’re going to have a stimulated economy, everything in the state of Wisconsin is going
to be great because we gave more money to millionaires. That’s what Scott Walker sold
when he ran for election because that’s what the Koch brothers told him to sell. As it
turns out reports are showing us now, no, the state of Wisconsin is doing pretty bad
compared to the rest of the country. Job growth in the state of Wisconsin is below the national
average. A wage gap just as big if not bigger than national average. We’re looking at a
state whose economic growth is well below the economic growth of the country as a whole
and it is because the tax breaks that Scott Walker gave to the top 1%. That money is not going back into the Wisconsin
economy. It’s going into banks. It’s going into trust funds. It’s going to buy yachts
and second homes down in Florida or California. It’s not going into Wisconsin. Do you know
why? Because trickle-down economics has never worked and it will never work. Even David
Stockman the man who invented trickle-down economics says, “Yeah, it was a stupid idea
and in practice there is no practical way that it could ever work.” That’s from the
guy who invented it. You know what? Republicans like Scott Walker
and Sam Brownback, what he did to Kansas, they will never stop this because they don’t
actually care about economic growth. What they care about is giving handouts to the
wealthy 1% because that 1% is going to turn right back around and give it to the Republican
politicians. That’s why they’re going to continue to do it even though they know that it will
never, ever work.

  1. Scott Walker sounds like an idiot just like Donald "Jackass" Trump! Boo Hiss. 2 thumbs down for these 2 men!

  2. As long as people continue to vote NAZI, they'll have nobody to blame for the outcomes other than themselves.

  3. The Walker KOCH tool is a HUGE NIGHTMARE for WI- voting is rigged, that's the only reason he made it through the recall.

  4. well they will keep trying "trickle down" over and over until you have the 1 time when it does work and start claiming they were right all along and start laying the blame for all the other times it has failed on something else

  5. On the other hand, e-cigs DO WORK! Retract your propaganda! WWW.ABILLIONLIVES.COM

  6. When Walker took over in Wisconsin it was one of the most successful states in the region.
    It has now become the worst performing state, with some commentators calling what Walker has done an economic disaster, a rip off fest for bonus scam privateer corruption… Wisconsin is now becoming like Detroit, exactly the same thing happened there.. attacks on unions, tax cuts for the rich, while the rich use the 'freedom' from regulation and stolen tax money to sell up and invest in China and financial scams (putting people into debt or raising rents) instead.
    Walker should be on trial for corruption IMO.. he is obviously guilty of the worst kind of treason, a psychopathic greed cult ripping off The People for fascist corps and banksters.

  7. The question isn't why republicans keep pushing trickle down. The question is why, after experiencing its effects and seeing its failure, do voters keep falling for it. Don't say stupidity. I refuse to believe that people who manage to dress themselves can be so stupid they can't see what's before them. And don't feel sorry for Kansass. They had their chance to dump Shitback but the Democrat went to a strip club 30 years ago.

  8. California got off that trickle down bull shit now there the 6th best economy in the world they started taxing the rich and boom they are doing great but the rich are bitching i cant afford to pay higher taxes i dont know what ill do this person made 67 million in 2014 and 55 million in 2015 this person is Phil Michelson pro golfer and Tiger said hell with that and lives in Juniper Florida after all that California did for him i hope he lives forever

  9. I live in Minneapolis. I heard a conversation on the radio this past week on a call from someone living "across the river" in Wisconsin. He was totally fed up with the Walker regime. He said they don't even pick up dead carcasses of animals off the highways any more. He counted 14 on the road on a 50 mile trip. Geez! It has to be crooked elections!

  10. Trickle Down economics is a Ponzi scheme, as are the Trade Deals set-up by the Wealthy!, when are the People going to learn???, If you are Not going to put them in Prison then at least tell them to go to _ell!

  11. I agree with you until you get to just Republicans being guilty. there are Democrats who have ruined the middle class, TOO. if you want to be fair and balanced then the greed is on both sides of the isle. especially Hillary who took MILLIONS from WALL ST!!!!! HELLO!!!!! do you think they gave her money for her campaign cause they're such nice guys!!!! NO!!! SHE OWES THEM BIG TIME!!! SHE IS NOT HONEST FROM WAY BACK TO THE 80S!!!!!

  12. How the Repugnantcan Party's "Trickle Down" theory works – the wealthy make out like bandits and the rest of us get pissed on.

  13. Obama is the Koch`s fav. politician. They`ve been getting fat during his Presidency while being allowed to sprinkle petcoke every fucking place.

  14. This upcoming election, vote out all the republicans because this will continue as long as Americans are stupid enough to buy into their shit.

  15. Wisconsin my home state. My favorite Scott Walker: he gave checks to corporations to "create jobs." So he gave $100,000+ to one company which then proceeded to "layoffs!!" Nice job creation Scott. Then the Republican legislature moved to remove themselves from giving out the money creating some kind of Commission to create jobs. Too late Scott!! The guy is a complete idiot and then you get to the corruption. Holding a college degree does not mean you know what you are doing but NOT holding a college degree in 2016 and running a major state government creates a problem. YOU DO WHAT SOME OTHER PEOPLE TELL YOU!! No real reflective take on the policy advanced!! That is Scott Walker and the empty space between his ears!!

  16. Walker is another fucking a loser . He takes bribes from the Kock brother's he need s to be jailed the put to death . It's time to wake up people the fucking right wing conservative assholes Republicans do care about you and me just the fucking rich. Let's fuck them over. Glad to be a Independent.
