The US economy is far too complex for a few new congressional acts to radically alter its course in the short term. Tax cuts are too slow and don't necessarily induce spending. Stimuli are slightly better, but tend to only be used during recessions (and rightly so). No other policy changes can significantly impact the short-term state of the economy at all.
The reason we had an economic boom in the late 90s was not because of Bill Clinton or Newt Gingrich or anyone else. It was due to the popularization of the world wide web and the globalization of countries that formerly had centrally planned economies.

Holy ****, this thread has grown quite rapidly.
I decided not to read past page 57, as it was getting noticeably partisan, and thus, predictable.
Plus, Iím lazy.
Anyone else go to the polls at around 1400-1500 in PA?
When I dropped by on my way to work, my local polling place was remarkably uncrowded.
Iím guessing because most people donít go to work in that time period, at least in my small town area.
