I am So F***ing Tired of the 'Multiplier Effect'. First of all, the people who use it are journalists, who last multiplied numbers in third grade, and probably weren't good at it then. Second, the redistributionists who put forth this nonsense are doing so simply to indicate how wonderful Big Government is, and how it makes people's lives better, so how could one NOT want to pay more taxes?

The problem for these people is that the lie is no longer working as well as it has in the past. Americans with common sense know that the 'Multiplier Effect', in reality, always uses numbers LESS THAN 1, and frequently negative. Look at how -bama multiplied our debt and created a net negative number of jobs. If The Smartest Man can't make the Multiplier Effect work, then it must be the fault of the Multiplier Effect, right?
