It's been proven by the best and brightest economists: tax cuts, especially on the wealthy, do NOT create jobs. The Bulls and Bears blabbermouths, with the exception of Chuck Rocha, were not interested in recalling that truth. They wanted to praise the GOP Governors for cutting taxes on their wealthy masters even though the reality is that they are wreaking havoc on their state's economies.

For example, crazy pro-forced birth lunatic, Governor Scott Walker, has been disastrous.

Walker is facing a $1.8 billion budget deficit. And as for the jobs, most of them never materialized. Wisconsin is near the bottom of Midwestern states in creating new jobs.

Also included in that list are the ever-despicable Sam Brownback of Kansas and New Jersey's 'savior' Chris Christie.

The Fox folks are operating under the premise that President Obama has been as economically disastrous as the president who preceded him, you remember, the one who helped our economy hit rock bottom? A noble laureate predicted the consequences of the Bush Administration in 2007:

The economic effects of Bush’s presidency are more insidious than those of Hoover, harder to reverse, and likely to be longer-lasting.

Bush 43 was also a big fan of making his rich friends pay far less than their fair share, and these GOP Governors they are fawning over have done similarly awful things to their own state's economic prospects.

Lisa Boothe praised Jeb (anti-minimum wage) Bush's Florida and Rick Perry's Texas job increases, but failed to mention most of the job creation in both states keep workers dependent on welfare assistance. Chuck Rocha explained the reality: tax cuts for the rich DO NOT trickle down to the workers. Gary B. Smith thinks that tax cuts always lead to job growth, but he failed to mention that those tax cuts must be on middle and poor workers.

Former WWE wrestler, John Layfield, praised Reagan's voodoo economics which effectively ended the middle class and the ability of a family to survive on a single income. Jonas Max Ferris cautioned against an increase on capital gains, which benefit the wealthy, of course. Gary B. Smith once again derided the size of government especially that useless department of education. Why do we need education when you have these terrific Fox pundits who can teach you? All you have to learn is to hate liberals, the panacea of the economically successful.
