It's interesting that you include a "historicals" reference, but you make no reference to events of history.<quoted text>
Didn't this raise any red flags?
"the largest four-year increase in American history." Since its given in $ value? Wouldn't you say "Of course, with inflation EVERY successive 4 year period will be "the largest four-year increase in American history."
So, let's look at the percent increases. The percentage increase in revenue for every 4-year budget period since 1982:
1982-1985 - 20.2%(Reagan tax cuts)
1986-1989 - 35%
1990-1993 - 16.5%(Bush tax hikes)
1994-1997 - 36.8%(Clinton tax hikes)
1998-2001 - 26%
2002-2005 - 8.2%(W Bush tax cuts)
2006-2009 - 2.3%
Do the math yourself:
You should include the increase during Reagan being compared to the deplorable Carter years when our continuing existence was threatened and the term "stagflation" became commonplace.
You should include the shift from Cold War technology development spillover into the private market lag, creating everything necessary for the dot-com boom to happen during Bush41.
You should include the dot-com boom during Clinton's era.
You should include the dot-com bust the the Bush43 era began with.
But, you get your propaganda off the White House web site. You know, that's not the only obvious bullshit on that site. ;-)
