    At least by half. So why are you trying to deflect, with the debt?

    lol

    We already know what economic policies work best for our country. Clinton knew that we had to cut spending and increase revenues. We had revenues of 20.6% of GDP and a surplus in 2000. Then something terrible happened, the Republicans gained complete control in 2001 and instead of sticking with what was working they decided that their ideology was more important. The debt has gone up $12+ trillion since then.

    The Economic Consequences of Mr. Bush
    The next president will have to deal with yet another crippling legacy of George W. Bush: the economy. A Nobel laureate, Joseph E. Stiglitz, sees a generation-long struggle to recoup.

    ANYTHING credible on regulations stopping job creation from those 'job creators' who have the largest Corp profits EVER recorded, lowest tax burden in 40+ years and first time EVER, labor costs less than 50% of costs?



    Republicans Loved Stimulus When Bush Was in the White House
    Back Then, Helping Boost Economic Growth Was Bipartisan

    In January 2008 when the economic picture was far less dire and the unemployment rate was only 4.8 percent, 165 Republicans in the House of Representatives and 33 Republican senators voted to pass a stimulus package with an estimated cost of $152 billion

    "Wait, employers react negatively to a tax increase? Don't tell the liberals, it'll destroy their worldview."


    Well tax cuts sure didn't help under Ronnie OR Dubya remember (Carter 9+ million PRIVATE sector jobs in 4 years to Ronnie's 14 million, Dubya lost over 1+ mullion).


    Didn't Clinton increase taxes A LOT and add over 21+ million PRIVATE sector jobs?
