The numbers just don’t make any sense

What am I missing? That is what I ask myself while reading Mr. Stephen Fletcher's suggestion and rationale for more tax breaks for the rich. What most other media outlet are reporting is, yes those of us making less than $50,000 a year have seen our incomes and net worth decline. Those of us making more than $250,000 a year and especially those in the upper one half of one percent of Americans have seen their incomes and their net worth grow by large percentages. Why would us low end people want to give tax breaks to put more money in their pockets? It's already there. Use it to create the jobs you keep referencing. Not to put more money in the pockets that already have it.
