Republicans only know one approach to economic policy; the abject failure and scam known as trickle down with a healthy dose of Draconian austerity. Those features epitomize the most recent budget proposal Nobel prize-winning economist Paul Krugman officially and accurately labeled as a "trillion dollar con job."
House Republicans have once again shown that they have little regard for the average American family or the typical American worker.
t is true that Republican policies are why Americans are rapidly losing economic ground to the few wealthy elites, but the media is not only culpable, they are facilitating this country's slide into oligarchy by perpetually campaigning for the rich and powerful.
