Saunders: Trickle-Down Doesn’t Work

October 02, 2012

AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders appeared on “The War Room” on Current TV to discuss the failure of austerity measures in Europe and the stark differences between the two presidential candidates on economic issues. 

“Trickle-down economics doesn't work in this country,” Saunders told host Jennifer Granholm. “It's not working in Spain, it's not working in Greece, it's not working in Europe.”

“The way to rebuild the economy is not to give more money to the top one percent in this country and give them more power and wealth at the expense of the 99%. And I hope that Americans are looking at what's going on in Spain right now and saying that this is not working, it can't work here in this country. Trickle-down does not work here.”
