all good things came to a screeching halt when bush gave tax cuts to wealthy and then proceeded to launch 2 wasteful wars without the funding.<quoted text> Um You do realize that unemployment hovered around 4.5% during most of Bush's time after 9/11. Under Bill Clinton it was said 5% was full employment. Riddle me this Batman! How do you create jobs when every one is working? With the tax cuts what you had was people keeping more of THEIR money. Spending went up. People were living better. Enjoying themselves. Wages were going up because demand for labor was fierce. I remember people offering 5-65 dollar an hour raises if I would come work for them. You are full of Ca-Ca!!!
ha...the employment sector nose-dived when ppl. stop feeding the inflationary spiral....which meant things got too damn expensive fo afford anymore. pure greed got us in trouble. nothing virtuous about the bush years.
