Larry Kudlow has had enough of the bailouts and enough the bashing of higher-income Americans. Here is a chunk but read the whole thing:
Irving Kristol taught us three decades ago that the top earners are the “economic activists”. They are the ones with the highest propensity to consume and invest. They’re the ones who purchase the yachts, which are subsequently constructed by blue-collar workers. And they’re the ones who run the small businesses and provide the capital for new entrepreneurial startups that are the lifeblood of this economy.
If we had an economy without rich people, we wouldn’t have much of an economy. That is why lower tax rates to reward the economic activists—that is, the most prominent capitalists—would be ever so helpful. Or slashing business tax rates that would create investment inflows to promote high wage earning new jobs. And, it would give consumers a break since they’re the ones that bear the brunt of high corporate taxes.
