    Source is listed at bottom of chart.

    Notice, under the three Republican presidents, public sector jobs continued to rise. The economy improved.

    Considering the trillions in Bush Tax Cuts, we should be doing very well according to those brilliant Republican economists.

    It's a 6% recession?

    It was caused by 90% of the white people?

    Well sure. In spite of what their constituents claim, they increase discretionary spending.

    George Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton were the only two admins under which real dollar discretionary spending per capita didn't increase. It leaves me completely unable to understand what these conservatives or Republican "economists" are even talking about. I mean, they certainly aren't talking about anything that they actually do or have done.

    Libertarians are fine, they don't like any admin. Of course, they never get anyone elected either, so their opinion really doesn't matter.
