    I don't need a college professor to tell me your response was revisionist history.

    Revisionist history? Offer verifiable actual facts to refute the statement?

    I'm really not sure what you believe that the Republican Congress did to make the late 90s prosperous. The fact is that neither Congress nor the President can do much to impact the short-term state of the economy, for better or for worse. In fact, the entity with the most direct control over that is the Federal Reserve.

    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.

    Check out the Contract with America. It is all about direction and attitude. The GOP Congress repealed many of the Clinton tax increases which created economic incentive and incentive drives our economy.

    i have found nothing which indicates the republicans were locked out of any health care negotiations. i recall Obama specifically requesting the republicans engage in the dialogue. please point to those things that excluded the republicans from an opportunity to debate the national health care issue
