“Is that math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better, or is it real?”
Now it’s time to ask the same question about the Ryan Budget. The GOP tried to solve problems with trickle-down math before, most recently under our MBA President, George W. Bush. That Republican Math added up to The Great Recession, and America can’t recover from it with more Republican Math.
The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service recently reviewed 65 years worth of Republican Math and found that “Supply Side” trickle-down didn’t work. Carl Rove didn’t argue with the facts then; Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans did. They tried to suppress the CRS study but you can read it here.
