Republicans if taking away money from the poor and giving it to the rich is good then why does it always fail?

seriously that's like the reasoning from a Down syndrome person.. Take money away from the poor and give it to the rich yeah that's the most stupidest thing I've ever heard

Update:

If you really do not know what they take away then you really are not a smart person and I will give you a hint it isn't a form of welfare

Update 2:

Obviously the majority of Republicans don't study the various forms of economics and politics because this is way over there head

    "The more realistic scenario is that Obama is just like any other president and will play tax games, smile on camera, Lie is a** off, and make back door deals while Corporations and banks have a great time with our country." When you consider the fact that Obama's latest "tax break" is really no different from Bush's tax rebate "stimulus" checks, what you are saying starts to make sense. Especially when his so called tax break is accompanied by massive spending, which means we are essentially getting checks in the mail paid for by IOUs to china so we can go out into the market place and buy chinese-manufactured goods. Obama is the biggest con man yet. He's already agreeing with Bush way too much on corporate welfare for my taste. So much for change we can believe in.

    No republican is advocating taking money from the poor! Ether you are watching some very misleading news or are just... I'm going to say "not smart" because it is more PC then what I was thinking.

    And when it comes to taking money from the poor guess what party and president pushed a income tax rise on everyone INCLUDING THE POOR just a few months back... the Democrats and Obama.

  • Name one instance when this has happened. It hasn't. Conservatism is allowing the people to drive the economy, and all the government does is protect. Low taxes equals more revenue which equals a stronger economy. We don't take from the poor and distribute to the rich. We give all the chance to make it big in the US. A good 90% of the poor in America are lazy leaches on welfare. All regulations and rules do is harm the economy.

    Actually, it IS a form of welfare - it's called "corporate welfare" - tax the working and middle class wage slaves, and give the money to corrupt Wall Street bankster bailouts, "defense" contractors and other war profiteers... failed auto companies, etc. - it's also known as corrupt crony capitalism....

    When has this ever happened ? The top 10% of the rich in American pay around 70% of all taxes. While over 50% of Americans pay ZERO federal taxes.

      wealth is already increasingly concentrated in the hands of the few, with over 30 percent of it in the hands of the top 1 percent and over 70 percent of it in the hands of the top 10 percent.

    You should read your own post then, you'd have a new stupidest thing to think about. Because nobody is taking money from the poor and giving it to the rich. If you want to see how big of a fool you've made yourself here.. put a little effort into seeing who pays the taxes and who gets the government subsidies.

    Stupidest thing I ever heard was someone saying poor have money to take away. Perhaps you mean the money given to them by the money earners in the first place.

      The poor have their time and energy taken away, along with the pitiful slave wages they're paid.

    No Republican wants to take money from the poor and give it to the rich.

    Republicans want the poor to have jobs and the drive to live the American dream. Democrats would prefer that they remain reliant on the Government to keep votes.

    Please explain how the rich are "taking away" from the poor.

    Obamacare is the BIGGEST tax on the middle class in decades. Obama is supplying his donors with taxpayer-funded loans/grants, etc. And those donors are WASTING those tax dollars. See Solyndra for one of MANY examples.

    EDIT: I can provide examples of the Democrat in highest office taking from the middle class to give to his rich donor buddies. And yet you canNOT provide ONE example to support your claim. Which means you DON'T know what you are talking about, and just repeating the same boring liberal talking points that have no basis in fact.
