When you give more money to the rich, they will not spend it, they save it, and that does nothing to help the economy. When you give money or tax breaks to the lower and middle class, they spend most of it. It's called the Marginal Propensity to Consume variable. It is that spending by the middle/lower class that stimulates the economy. It's basic economics. That is why bailing out the investment banks has failed. Unemployment is rising and the banks are back to their specualtive ways and massive bonuses while most hard working Americans suffer.

Obama is not an economist, and he's being advised by the same people that were around when it all went to shit. Ultimately he is responsible, but he needs to hire people that were not a part of the problem to begin with.
