Democrats like to claim the 1990s were a golden age while the Bush years were disastrous. But Bush inherited a recession, the dot-com bubble had burst in 2000, and the economy was sinking even before the shock of 9/11.
By late 2002, the economy was struggling which is when Bush proposed his second round of tax cuts. The tax rate reductions were immediate and included cuts in capital gains and dividends designed to spur business incentives. AS THE TAX CUTS BECAME LAW IN LATE MAY 2003, THE RECOVERY BEGAN IN EARNEST.
Growth averaged nearly 4% over the next three years, the jobless rate fell from 6.3% in June 2003 to 4.4% in October 2006, and real wages began to grow despite rising food and energy prices. The 2003 tax cut was the high point of Bush economic policy.
Yes, Bush made some mistakes in spending too. But he did more things right than wrong in the wake of 9/11.
He would probably be doing a better job than this president if given one more term.
Nah, I doubt it. I doubt you read beyond what you were looking for.
Besides, you haven't been that smart on such matters.
