    What you fail to understand is that clinton raised taxes and then lost the Congress in 1994.. That led to implementation of a pro growth economic policy including the 1997 tax cuts. Weren't you old enough then to know that taxes were cut?

    What is it with you that you worry more about money going to the govt. than the taxpayer who earns it first?

    Maybe you had better tell the CBO that there numbers suck.While you're peering at the numbers, notice how the revenue comes in during the Clinton years.Couldn't happen according to poplar conservative belief because Clinton raised taxes s eh?.

    I posted the revenue numbers from the Treasury Dept. You apparently don't understand CBO and their projections. CBO is seldom accurate for they have to use Congressional assumptions for their projections. Assumptions wrong then the projections are wrong and that happens all the time.

    Please stop posting data other than the Treasury data which is the only data that matters.

    I’m old enough to know that the $240 billion tax increase, called the "1993 deficit reduction legislation" was passed in …duh, 1993. The deficit-reduction started going down shortly after the “1993 deficit reduction legislation “was put in place.

    No, you sling enough of it for all of us and continue to buy the leftwing rhetoric. I am so sorry that you feel it is your duty to defend the govt. on taking taxpayer dollars and ignore completely the effects of you keeping more of what you earn on the economy.

    Too bad you only know part of the story about the deficit reduction plan that did work, it cost Clinton the Congress and the rest is history. Guess nothing really changes the mind of a brainwashed ideologue who buys the liberal line and believes the CBO and economists are more accurate than the bank account of the govt.

    Well those '97 Republican tax cuts certainly helped fuel the dotcom bubble, just as the 2001-03 Republican cuts helped fuel the real estate bubble. Great work, Brownie.

    Right, people keeping more of their own money is always a bad thing in your world, isn't it? Are you sending your Bush tax cuts back?

    Typical response from a "progressive." How do you know that raising taxes on the rich will create more revenue to the govt. and that if it does happen the money will be used to lower the deficit?
    The Democratic hero Bill Clinton added 1.3 trillion to the debt in 8 years. It really is a shame that liberals/progressives have been brainwashed by an ideology that promotes higher taxes so the govt. has more money to spend when the reality is those higher taxes aren't going to put 24 plus million unemployed/under employed Americans back to work full time.

    Keep buying that liberal rhetoric that promotes dependence.

    Hate to break it to you, but we couldn't fix this deficit if we took every single penny from the top 1%.
