Making your same claims over and over again doesn't make it true
    Meanwhile, you voted for Bush in 2000 after he said he was giving the surplus back to the people via tax cuts because they were "overcharged."

    Why did you vote for a liar like that?

    Ah, now we're playing the "where's the republican" game to try to attribute anything good to republicans and anything bad to democrats. Unfortunately for you, republicans opposed Clinton's tax hikes and also opposed his defense cuts, so they don't get much credit.

    But then, I don't really expect someone who believes Democrats conrtrolled the Senate when the 2001 recession began to understand that.
    Let's look at the numbers, so instead of calling you a liar I will just tell you that you don't have a clue as to what you are talking about.

    In the first case there are 150000000 in the labor force with 14 million unemployed, that is a 9.3% unemployment rate. In the second example a million seniors dropped out of the labor force and the unemployment roles taking the labor force to 149 million and the unemployed to 13 million or 8.7 unemployment rate. I don't think you have a clue so keep digging that hold deeper.


    150000000 149000000
    14000000 13000000

    Exactly as did the American people who kicked the Democrats out of office in 1994, GOP Cut taxes in 1997 but of course that didn't make Media matters news reports.

    You keep talking about the housing bubble but ignoring the dot.com bubble so keep it real.

    Because he was running against a bigger liar, Al Gore and John Kerry

    Conservative calls that game, "Whack-a-Dem."

    After you smack yourself on the forehead I hope to get an apology from you for calling me ignorant when you're the one parading it like you just scored a touchdown with it.
    The recession began in March 2001 so tell me what policy Bush had in place in March 2001 after taking office on January 21, 2001? it was an equally divided Senate at the time but more importantly what did Bush do to cause the 2001 recession?

    The '97 tax cuts were bipartisan, FYI. But it is ironic that you trumpet them, because it is in large part the child credit they introduced that has resulted in so many lower and middle income families not paying any FIT.
