Reagan Supply Side End Game
The budget battle in Washington is really just the final collapse of the trickle down programs that were started thirty years ago. Two ironic factors have evolved out of this disaster; 1) the conservatives are pushing more of the same in order to fix the problem, and 2) the Tea Party has developed with a right wing agenda.
If their was any logic to all this we would have a large angry contingent of the middle class populace, a Tea Party, that was pushing for something new. Instead we have a right wing elitist Tea Party group that wants even more.
