    Fox News guest storms off show after host refuses to accept simple tax math

    Fox News guest storms off show after host refuses to accept simple tax math


    “Over time, a majority of middle-class people will be paying more in taxes rather than less,” he explained.
    Fox News host Melissa Francis didn't like the numbers he was using, so she told him they didn't count.

    Numbers don't count, according to Fox, if they draw conclusions that they don't agree with.

    From the link:

    “No, no, I don't accept that math. It's static analysis, and I don't accept static analysis. I only agree with dynamic analysis, because when you cut, the economy's going to grow."

    So, when has that worked?

    Here you go.

    Sorry Democrats. You’re wrong.
    I showed you last week how income inequality rose to extremes in 1929 and then fell to its lowest point into 1975-1978. And how it has risen to extremes again, which is why it’s such a political hot potato right now.

    It’s clear that technological innovations and other economic drivers trickle down to the average Joe. It’s just hard to see because it doesn’t happen quickly. It takes decades!

    The top 10% peaked in 1928, taking home a whopping 49.3% of the income! The bottom 90% had to fight over the remaining 50.7%.

    But, they began to gain modestly in the early 1930s, while that top 10% saw its share of income fall to 32.5% by 1944 (see why I warn that the economic winter season will hit the rich harder than Homer Simpson?).
    Then they enjoyed a sharp rise in income, and the rise of a broad middle class, during World War II.

    From there, they lived in a “golden era” into 1978, with income shares largely between 67% and 68%.

    This happened thanks to trickle-down economics.

    This rise of the middle class came on a long lag from the great innovations of the late 1800s into the Roaring 20s.

    Electricity and telephones emerged around 1900, the Model T in 1907, the all-important assembly line in 1914, and the modern corporation and radios in 1921 (notice the seven-year cycles).

    The rich were moving to the suburbs into the 1920s. But the middle class finally made that massive shift only after WWII.

    This new suburban lifestyle wouldn’t have been possible without electricity, cars, phones and telephones… and then radios and TV to follow. All of those innovations allowed people to enjoy a safer, more spacious and affordable lifestyle and higher wages.
    Like I said: clearly trickle-down economics works.

    Just watched the piece . Wow! How rude was that partisan hack host ? And the right calls others fake news? Just another example of Fox as the propaganda wing of the GOP. Do you righties call that journalism?

    Hell, maybe you do. After all, you call Trump a good president so your standards are a mite low anyway. It was like Dracula being repulsed by a cross only it was a Hack being faced with an inconvenient truth.

    If that clip isn't proof positive of just how dishonest Fox Noise is, I don't know what else could be.

    Corporations are making a killing and sitting on nearly $2 Trillion in cash. Profits are way up. Why aren't they paying it forward now? I'll tell you why, because it's a scam and you are getting conned, again, like a good little Trumpster.

    They'll never learn nor will they ever admit falling for the worst con man ever. To not know that he was full of shit during the campaign season is hard to wrap my head around. Didn't think Americans were that easily duped.

    Hey guys, did you see the handshakes and smiles when Trump met Putin in Hanoi? It was bizarre. The guy who interfered in our democracy getting a warm greeting from our fearless leader. It was sickening to watch. But I guess I can understand because like Trump said, "he said he didn't do it and I believe him." Fuckin' weird.

    Spooky, you do know who pulled us out of the depression,beginning in the late 1930’s don’t you?

    It certainly was not Republicans or trickle down. Deepest recession since the depression,then Bush Jr gave us another after 8 prosperous years of Clinton.

    Jimmy Carter’s problem was the oil shortage and inflation. Dwight Eisenhower gave us the Interstate based on the German Autobahn. He would have no use for the Republican Party of today. Both parties wanted him to run.

    But,above all Franklyn D. Roosevelt brought us out of the Depression,won the war and created the programs that keep so many from poverty today.

    Since Reagan, the Republicans have tried to kill middle class programs.that seems to be all they have,right up to Trump,who has accomplished not one thing in a year,except try to kill our protections.
