I think we need to re-visit some history... President Bill Clinton raised taxes.... we had the one of the greatest economic booms in history. We had a huge budget surplus. We had low unemployment and times were good. Bush took over. Gave tax cuts to the wealthy. They, instead of using the Republican trickle down theory which never works, pocketed the money. Jobs started to go, the deficit ran wild (as it always does under Republican rule) and we were on the verge of a second great depression.
Who had a better economic policy?
