    Bush brought in record amounts of tax revenue. When PBO breaks Bush's revenue record, then you can blame Bush for our problems. Until then, you oughta just accept the fact that the Libbos are only making things worse.

    Tax revenue means jack **** when there is a deficit. Record tax revenue had to be accompanied by record spending in order for the debt to increase nearly 100%....

    What about the conservative approach to government, you know.... the ones who are now calling for a balanced budget? Where were they?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Revenue has nothing to do with the recession.

    He obviously meant that if there's a deficit anyway, revenue is nothing to brag about.

    Correct.

    Especially when the economy was not as ****ed up as it is now....

    But a recession has everything to do with revenue. So why does BO have to exceed Bush's revenue to prove Bush didn't cause our problems? That makes no sense.
