    Even if true, so? They didn't do both at the same time. If they did, they could not have had that problem. You're actually just saying they were incompetent.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I'm sorry but the American Enterprise Institute disagrees with you about spending cuts under Reagan:

    President Reagan cut the budget of eight agencies out of fifteen during his first term, and ten out of fifteen during his second term.

    Yes, that was part of the compromise with Democrats, $1 in tax hikes for every $3 in spending cuts. Love dealing with kids here who don't have a clue.

    So, you're arguing Reagan and GHW Bush were incompetent, and that we can't count on republicans to structure a law that does both at the same because they don't know how?

    The Republicans ONE big idea for the economy is always "Give more money to the weathiest and hopefully some of it will trickle its way done through the system". It has NEVER worked and it will never work....and yet, they keep trying the same thing over and over and over....and keep expecting different results.

    Well, it's hard to think of something new or original. It's just hard.

    You receive better health care then a richest person in the world could get 20 short years ago.

    It has clearly worked, you are just too ignorant to see how well it has worked. wealth is trickling down all around you.
