Giving money to people who have no money means they spend the money. To buy stuff. From businesses. Who suddenly need more people to sell more stuff to more people who are buying more stuff. So more people are working, so more people who had no money now have money. And they buy more stuff. And every company selling stuff gets a share.

Giving money to companies that have money means they have more money. To… well, they don’t buy more stuff, they already have stuff. And they can’t sell more stuff, because their customers have no more money. So they buy non-stuff, like stock. Or off-shore investments with better returns than in the States. But they don’t need more people. And they don’t give their people more money, because their investors would kill them.

So the starving people in the street say, “Well, *that* didn’t work! Stupid libtards screwed us over again, because… stupid libtards!” And then they die.

P.S. Looking forward to awesome returns on my retirement investment portfolio in 2018. Planning to cash out before the elections, just in case a Congress gets elected that tries to claw back all the money and, y’know, reduce the deficit or something dumb like that. Okay, maybe not, because what are the odds of *that* happening?
