What a load of horsecrap, you still going to deny 9/11 ever happened? Still going to deny the democrat authored mortgage disaster was going to happen? Even 8 years of the same Clinton tax rates could only have produced app.$560 Billion dollars, the CBO and their[yours}$5.6 trillion dollars surplus is a pipe dream.<quoted text>
in early 2001. the CBO predicted that by 2012 we would have amassed a 5.6 trillion surplus.
In going through as to what changed this, the Bush tax cuts were part of the Bush policies that claimed nearly 40% of the reason. Obama's policies claimed only 10%.
Unfunded tax cuts while expanding government & at a time of war was indeed a major factor.
Clinton benefited from 2 things, the dotcom boom and Newt Gingrich and a republican congress. The dotcom boom ended in app. 2001.
I will give you credit for actually posting a sensible argument for the first time I've ever seen.
