Trickle-down economics is nothing more than a cruel joke. Just look at what happened to Kansas. In 2012, Gov. Sam Brownback’s draconian tax cuts for the wealthy drove the economy into a ditch. The consequences were disastrous: Job growth stalled, deficits ballooned, and lawmakers were forced to make deep cuts to education and infrastructure. So much for Brownback’s “real-live experiment” in trickle-down economics. Trump’s tax plan is more of the same.
