    That comment doesn't even begin to address the statement that it responded to. Just a standard, rightwing deflection.

    The difference, you ask? It's called the Great Bush Recession and his tax cuts to the rich that we'll be paying for decades if not remedied. I love how selective the conservative view of history is. You know how much of that $18T debt belongs to dems since 1976? About 1/3. The rest is the result of the Reagan/Bush combined deficits and the compounding effects of interest costs they've generated. Conservative economics and fiscal policy have strangled this country over the past 30 years.

    And conservatives don't prefer for liberals to think as themselves??

    This is fun, isn't it? Don't get Conservative too upset, if I'm not mistaken he is nurse or some such thing. Wouldn't want to cause his patients any more harm than he already puts them in. Can you imagine walking into a doctor's office and running into someone like him? Wow, where's the door!

    But this debt crisis did not originate with George W. Bush.

    Reagan’s tax cuts brought a rapid ballooning of the federal debt, which was $934 billion in January 1981 when Reagan took office. When he departed in January 1989, the debt had jumped to $2.7 trillion, a three-fold increase. And the consequences of Reagan’s reckless tax-cutting continued to build under his successor, George H.W. Bush, who left office in January 1993 with a national debt of $4.2 trillion, more than a four-fold increase since the arrival of Republican-dominated governance in 1981.

    Exactly right!

    There's one unequivocal argument concerning supply side/trickle down that can't be disputed: It didn't work!

    If it did, after thirty years of it shouldn't we be awash in jobs and a stronger middle-class, with less poverty?
