I hope you're being facetious.

I'm not an economist, but from what I can understand, it goes something like this:
- Give the working (that is, middle) class tax breaks.
- This allows them to have a few extra dollars in their pockets.
- Some of which they then spend.
- As some spend, consumer confidence rises, and more spend.
- That money spent goes into businesses, of course.
- The businesses have more money.
- The businesses expand and hire more people.
- Boom.

The opposite, top-down (or trickle-down) goes something like this.
- Give the upper (that is, the job-creating) class tax breaks.
- The businesses have more money.
- The businesses expand and hire more people.
- People who were unemployed are now hired.
- People who are hired now have money.
- Some of which they then spend.
- As some spend, consumer confidence rises, and more spend.
- That money spent goes into businesses, of course.
- Boom.

How am I doing?
