Government - Historical Debt Outstanding - Annual 2000 - 2014
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.

"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?
