Romnesia -- and tricke-down government.

I think Romney said in the last debate, "trickle-down government doesn't work".  That's the first I've heard that phrase.  It was always trickle down economics in which the rich are made richer and they create jobs so the poor become richer.  Unless of course they put their money in the Caymans or Swiss bank accounts like Romney did.
