A screen shot from "Let It Trickle," Truthdig's 2017 holiday animation by Mark Fiore.

As 2017 winds down, Mark Fiore brings animated holiday tidings to show the true meaning of trickle-down economics. The national situation is not pretty at the moment, as the federal government and Wall Street continue to tell 99 percent of Americans to go kick themselves.
