The Republicans keep trying to get tax cuts for the wealthy because they "Create Jobs". Not only does the theory of Supply-side economics not make sense, but the practice has proven that the wealthy do not create jobs because we give them more money. Why not subsidize only those wealthy or those businesses that actually create jobs. In this way, the American taxpayer can be saved a lot of money: As an example, let's say that instead of giving all of the wealthy and all businesses tax breaks before they've created jobs, we only give those wealthy individuals and businesses money after they've created jobs. If only 20% of the wealthy individuals and businesses create jobs, we've saved 80% of the money that would have been given away for no reason. This is why I have little faith in Republicans and Democrats: Why couldn't they get support for an idea such as this, let alone come up with it in the first place.
