If several billionaires pay less in taxes next year, some of them will put it where we want them to, some won't.

As Nick has pointed out, any money they don't take out of the country or put in their home safe is reinvested in the economy. That said, putting it in the bank doesn't yield all of the benefits we're looking for. Some of them will create new jobs with it, some won't, and in each case our respective sides will point at it as absolute, empirical proof that supply side economic theory does/doesn't work.

I prefer economic theories that work some of the time, over ones that make acquiring wealth difficult while keeping old money in old hands, all in the interest of common economic security. That's a broad brushstoke, I realize. I've been surprised before by certain economic liberties enjoyed in Eurosocialist countries, and probably will be again. My sister runs a private school bus service in the heart of Commiefornia, of all places. But, it's the exception that defines the rule and what I see in a lot of the Western world amounts to a landed aristocracy and a lower middle class that can't move up.

Troll's Hole proclaimed:
Oh mighty dictator of the spider's lair
Why are the smilies appropriate?
Your horse drawn wagon is as inexpensive as a London unforunate
Who can you please when your tree house of diamonds collapses?
Its ladder being pulled away by the children who won't grow
Unleash the lizard
Squash the rebellion, for they mean to commit highway robbery
Turn their words into incomprehensible letters
Prisoners of the physical realm
Only the arms of the bear can save them now
But the ref pulls out the red card
The crab of the downward spiral eats ravioli and ejaculates corrupt Linux files
