    Yeah boy, I remembers how bad it was in the dark days of socialism in the 90's with low unemployment and a small budget deficit!!! We sure wouldn't want to go back to that, would we????

    Right, you have a selective memory and forget that Clinton had the Reagan peace dividend and still added 1.4 trillion to the debt. So much for those small budget deficits? How do you explain the Tax Relief Act of 1997 which cut taxes and led to that "claimed" Clinton balanced budget?

    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.

    Are you blaming Obama for the Bush wars he inherited? Do you want to go back to the tax rates after the the tax relief Act of 1997? Deal! As they were higher than they were before being cut by Bush. And much higher than what Romney is proposing.

    Romney has said he wants to increase spending and decrease revenues. Just sounds like more debt to me, the same thing the GOP has brought us for the last 30 years!

    "Reagan peace dividend "whatta joke.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    You are so out of touch with reality it is shocking. So much emphasis on taxpayers funding liberal programs that you ignore the fact that taxpayers keeping more of their money need less of that so called liberal help and that is what scares the hell out of liberal politicians.

    Romney has said no such thing, you are delusional. Romney knows that a growing economy increases govt. revenue, you cannot grasp that concept.

    You mean the Nixon peace dividend, right? The last war we had prior to then was Vietnam.

    It didn't lead to that. The budget deficit was already dropping every year before than and in FY1999, the second fiscal year following the tax cuts, the deficit grew by 92 billion more than the previous year.

    ------------------------
    FY1992: +23,434,812,235
    FY1993: -52,449,076,207
    FY1994: -65,607,200,744
    FY1995: -28,036,178
    FY1996: -30,404,952,270
    FY1997: -62,492,966,165
    ------------------------ tax cuts (aug/2007)
    FY1998: -75,288,074,761
    FY1999: +17,030,895,218
