    Every House Republican voted Thursday to reject the proposition that the Bush tax cuts added to the deficit.

    House GOP Declares Unanimously: Bush Tax Cuts Did Not Blow Up The Budget

    "When the Republicans passed the Bush Tax Cuts, they told us that they would pay for themselves," Peters said in an official statement. "We now know that this added over $2 trillion to the deficit and by forcing an up or down vote on this amendment, I'm giving House Republicans the opportunity to recognize this fact."

    House Dem To Force Vote: Did Bush Tax Cuts Add To The Deficit

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Republicans voted unanimously to rewrite history and it worked. History has been rewritten. They are amazing.

    Gee, there's a surprise. A bunch of Republicans deny another Republican did something wrong. And a bunch of Democrats agree a Republican did do something wrong.

    That's weird, when Republicans enact a policy that turns out to be a devastating failure, they usually admit fault and work on correcting it right away. :confused:

    I think the 2 wars on the other side of the planet had more to do with budget busting than the tax cut. The tax cut put money back into the consumers pocket and they spent it, reducing inventory and causing demand on supply and keeping people working and those who worked in the US, paying taxes. Of course most of the ones working were in China.

    The wars had no redeeming effect on the economy except keeping a few war industries booming and creating a private military army.

    Tax cuts didn't cause the deficit problem government spending did. Did you know that tax revenues were higher during the first three years of the Bush Presidency than they have been during the first three years of the Obama Presidency? So how is that? How do you have tax cuts and have more revenue?

    Yet even though there has been less tax revenue, government expenditures have exploded in the last three years.
