There are two ideas of government.  There are those who believe that if you just legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, that their prosperity will leak through on those below.  The Democratic idea has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous their prosperity will find its way up and through every class that rests upon it.

William Jennings Bryan,  in an address to the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, July 9, 1896

Who knew? Who knew that this ridiculous school of 'Trickle Down Economics' had been around for such a long time? Of course! It's been around just as long as greed has been.
