Re: the Dec. 27 letter to the editor "Let's get some real data on trickle-down economics."
The letter writer suggested that we get some real data from a nonpartisan (if there is such a thing any more) entity with respect to proving or disproving "trickle-down" economic theory. The Republican saint, President Reagan, attempted it and ended up raising taxes.
We shouldn't, however, need any other proof than the absolute failure of Arthur Laffer's theory in Kansas. This was a real time experiment that failed miserably and is in the process of being reversed. I'm not sure why anyone would need any other data besides that.
