Trickle Down or Trickle On?

It's amazing how ingrained trickle down economics is... on the one hand conservatives argue that we're broke and busted, on the other Governor's and State Legislatures would fall all over themselves to offer huge "incentives" for any new major manufacturer to open in their State. The idea being, if we just grease the palms of these corporate masters enough, they will take care of us. Add into it, their own pet projects and politics and you've got to ask, are we really broke? Or are they trying to "shrink government to the size that can drowned in the bathtub" as Grover Norquist dreamed.
