The same thing Clinton did to get the economy rolling during his years in office. Lower taxes and you get more interested investors. How does that help the little guy?
Well I don't know about you, but my IRA is invested in the market. In fact, during the lowest part of the crash, my investment company poured a ton of my money into buying shares. It was like taking advantage of a 2 for 1 sale. That will help me greatly come retirement time when we are out of SS money.
Also when Bush cut taxes, my employer purchased a whole new fleet of trucks not to mention he hired two additional employees. Plus it brought in record revenues for the government:

As far as real dollars are concerned, here is a NYT Republican bash piece on letting the tax cuts expire. The reason I saved this article if for one, it's a totally liberal paper, and two, their numbers are correct when it comes to how much money we would have gained by allowing the tax cuts to expire:
"LET THE BUSH CUTS EXPIRE Mr. Obama vowed to let the high-end tax cuts (for people making more than $250,00) expire in 2010. But in a preview of the debt fight, he agreed to extend the cuts for two more years when Republicans held unemployment benefits and other measures hostage.
Letting all of the cuts expire at the end of 2012 would save $3.8 trillion over the next decade. Letting the tax cuts expire for those making more than $250,000 would save $700 billion. That would make a real dent in the $2.4 trillion in total deficit reduction envisioned in the debt limit deal."
So what this article points out is if DumBama's tax plan went through, letting the tax cuts expire for those making over $250,000 would only net us 70 billion a year. That's less than we spend on food stamps every year. But more importantly, it shows that most of the tax cuts were enjoyed by people making less than $250,000 per year.
Yes,less taxes mean more investment.......... OVERSEAS, because that's exactly what happened.

Glad your 401k, worked out.

Too bad Enron's didn't and thousands more like it.

They just needed more tax breaks.

Companies should get tax breaks AFTER they create U.S. jobs, not before.

Instead they not only got tax breaks, they got tax incentives, they get free land, free buildings, free roads, 30 year property tax exemptions etc. all to create a hundred,$10.00 hr. jobs.

Or they just closed shop after the government money ran out.

How soon people forget about the tech bubble that burst during the last year of Clinton's reign, or the downturn the economy took after the mid-term elections in Bush's second term AFTER the Dems took control of both the House and Senate.

Sure buddy whatever you say - the Bush administration inherited the most sound fiscal conditions in many decades. Fact is, two unpaid tax cuts and two unpaid wars is what destroyed the fiscal stability.
9 Investigates examines gun ownership and violent crime rates

LAKE COUNTY, Fla.—

The City of Clermont may be best known as home to the Citrus Tower, but as 9 Investigates first revealed in February, it is also home to the ZIP code with the most concealed weapons permits in our area.

Lake County is central Florida's most highly armed county overall: 7.1 percent of its residents have a concealed weapon permit. And Lake County also has central Florida's lowest rate of violent crime....

you are confused. Bush inherited a good economy and ran it into the ground with policies that defunded the government while starting two wars and enriching the super rich. President Obama inherited a mess and has a Republican party united in thwarting all efforts for improvement.
Obama’s Now Borrowed More Than All Presidents from Washington to W

( CNSNews.com )- The federal government has now borrowed more money during Barack Obama’s time as president than it did in the period lasting from the time President George Washington took the oath office until July 2, 2001, more than five months into the first term of President George W. Bush.

At the close of business on Jan. 20, 2009, when President Barack Obama was inaugurated, the national debt stood at

$10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury.

At the close of business this Thursday, it stood at

$16,323,083,449,604.98.

That means the debt has increased $5,696,206,400,691.90 during Obama’s presidency.

How? By more Constitutionally perverse 'gun control'?

"If there were evidence of a merely friendly meeting, it be the same as if there were no assemblage. If they were to give evidence that Blannerhassett and some of those with him were in possession of arms, as people in this country usually are, it would not be sufficient of itself to prove that the meeting was military.

"Arms are not necessarily military weapons. Rifles, shot guns, and fowling pieces are used commonly by the people of this country in hunting and for domestic purposes; they are generally in the habit of pursuing game. In the upper country every man has a gun; a majority of the people have guns every where, for peaceful purposes. Rifles and shot guns are no more evidence of military weapons than pistols or dirks used for personal defence, or common fowling pieces kept for the amusement of taking game. It is lawful for every man in this country to keep such weapons. In England indeed every man is not qualified to keep a gun; but even to those who have not that privilege the possession of dirks and pistols is not unlawful. Surely their possession at that island, of such arms as every man in this country is legally authorized to keep, and which most people do keep, can be no more evidence of a military project, or an intention to subvert the government, than if they had not been there at all. What is the rule to distinguish in such cases" There must be such evidence of a hostile assemblage proved to the court, as if true in point of fact, would constitute a treasonable assemblage."

I think President Barack Schultz just sealed the deal to ensure it's lost for Dems in 2016.

AP and other liberal news folks getting wiretapped and spied on.

IRS abuse of power to violate civil rights

Benghazi coverup-weapons running

Health and Human Services extorting non-profits to fund Obamacare

$16 Tillion Dollars of debt

The list seems to grow every day and it's only 2013.

Even with all those scandals, there will never be another conservative President under the present system.
By 2016, the non working handout recipients will far outnumber the working taxpayers. Taxes will go up exponentially to support government salaries, pensions, and handout programs. If the amnesty bill gets passed, there will be 11 million Democrat voters added to the rolls instantly. Baby Boomers are retiring. That's 3 decades of record number retirees. That's a lot of people leaving the work force and utilizing social security, Medicare, Medicaid, and joining the very liberal, progressive AARP. Do you think they will vote for smaller government, or to reform the system they paid into all their life now that it is time to collect from it? Do you think those abusing and defrauding Welfare, Food Stamps, Government Housing, Free Cell Phones, and the rest of the long list of Government Handouts are going to vote to reform that system? Scandal is irrelevant to the 2016 and later Presidential Elections.

People finally getting fed up with what is happening, and revolting against the tyrannical system is the only cure for this country's cancer.

Reagan wasn't a conservative.

You don't even understand your own posts. You stated there has NEVER been a conservative President. Do I need to copy and paste your post to prove it? Or do you want to make a few more deflective posts first?
