1990s; however, you have neglected to point out another fact of those days. That fact is Newt Gingrich and the Republican Congress. Clinton signed the bills they passed. They both get credit. You will not find me defending the deficits of the Bush Era.
My point was that Reagan agreed to raise taxes in exchange for cuts in expenditures. The Dems got their tax increases, but Reagan did not get his expenditure cuts. That was the 1980s. I provided proof of that long ago. In the 1990s, Mr. Read My Lips, came to an agreement again with the Dems. This time it was $3 of expenditure cuts for $1 tax increase. The tax increase was implemented, but the Dems only cut 27 cents. These are the lies to which I speak. No offense, but I don't trust the Dems. I don't really trust the GOP all that much either. I'm afraid they will get snookered by a third lie.
