To the Editor:
Republican legislators from Speaker Paul Ryan to state Sen. Toni Boucher adhere to an ideology having little to do with how today’s economy works. They believe that tax cuts on the rich and on big corporations will stimulate economic growth and create jobs. They will not. Corporate executives expect government to fund investment through subsidies. They use profits to buy back shares of stock to concentrate control. They expect taxpayers to fund infrastructure suitable to them. They enhance profits by cutting wage costs. They do not encourage productivity by rewards to their workforce. They do pay huge perks to their higher executives, and golden parachute security against failure.
