The Great Reptile Corporate Tax Cut – be careful what you wish for – and bribe legislators for – may well backfire on corporate fat cats. I'm sure they believed that stock buy-backs financed by these tax cuts would increase stock prices, and it did, momentarily. But in the long run? That remains to be seen.

It defies comprehension that the Masters of Greed fail to comprehend the most basic economic fact, to wit, their long-term success depends on consumers, and in particular, consumers with discretionary income. No lest an ardent capitalist than Henry Ford understood this. When the fat cats of his day whined about him paying double the going rate for workers, Ford responded tersely and succinctly: "Who the hell do you think is going to buy my cars?"

T has it right here, but, lets not forget that what they did for no reason other than greed was actually the remedy one uses when there is an actual crash. Giving out the cuts for no reason to the Corporations and one per-centers means that now if we go down there is no alternative but more bail outs, fascinating, no?
