Bush tax cuts grew govt. revenue as well and created 8.5 million new jobs. Bush had another problem however, 9/11 that hurt the economy and job creation. He then had the recession that began in December 2007 thus the 2008 numbers are skewed very badly.
Right now we have 16 million unemployed Americans. What would the tax revenue be if those 16 million went back to work and what is it going to take to make that happen? The present status quo isn't doing it, so cut taxes, increase demand, and more jobs are created thus more taxpayers.
