    Yeah, spending doesn't create deficits, tax cuts do.

    You'll have to get over the facts when taxes are cut, revenues rise... and we haven't cut any taxes.

    This is the another example where the conservative worshipers or ideology before everything else doom the rest of us before their altar. I don't give a damn about your belief system. Give me pragmatic results that can be demonstrated just like the Clinton 22 million job creations with higher tax rates.

    Didn't realize that this thread was about Clinton and Bush nor did I realize that we had someone here who totally ignores history. anyone that believes the Clinton tax increases gave us 22 million jobs is absolutely brainwashed as BLS doesn't show Clinton creating 22 million jobs nor does logic and common sense support that contention.

    What about spending cuts? You never address the fact Clinton cut the military almost in half.

    Looks like a 4 million job creation error according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Please explain why the data from BLS isn't accurate but your statement is? Then explain how the Clinton increase in taxes caused the job growth? Apparently the President controls all the power and the Congress none in your world.
