When Cheney made his remarks we had a strong economy, the deficit was around 27% of GDP, unemployment at 5.5%, and the GDP annual growth rate around 3 to 4%! Strong economic growth, low unemployment, equals revenues!<quoted text>Actually Reagan has the record for tripling our public debt...
and then Cheney told us that"Reagan proved that deficits don't matter."
history is fun!
So Cheney is correct if you have a strong economy the deficit has less of an impact on the overall picture!!
