GOP Raising Funds via Offshore Workers

The theory of trickle down economics and tax cuts for the affluent was that American business would grow, and new American jobs would be created. The GOP has, in a sly manuever to elicit fun-raising services from a telemarketing firm in India, shown that such theories and philosophies are merely the gaseous stench of corruption. The stench of course is not limited to Republicans, Clinton himself was party to this type of economic bait-and-switch, endowing China with most preferred nation status, removing trade restrictions (via GATT and NAFTA), and a marked increase in H1-B visas. Albeit without the obvious pandering to business in the form of tax breaks. Is trickle down economics a misnomer? Shall we call it what it really is: table scraps economics?
