As we approach our next economic bailout, maybe it’s time to try something different. We all know that the trickle-down theory only works well with a distasteful, warm, yellow liquid. Let’s test a trickle-up theory.

A trickle-up theory would work by sending the money to the general working-class public (adults over 18 with adjusted gross income of less than some arbitrary amount, perhaps $100,000). Divide up the entire amount of the bailout into equal amounts for each qualified person.

This would amount to having the working-class public voting, with their economic bailout money, for the businesses that should continue serving us.
