What do you think?
the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities pointed out the Bush tax cuts will cause $3.4 trillion in deficits over between 2009 and 2019 while the debt service costs caused by the Bush-era tax cuts, amount to more than $200 billion through 2008 and another $1.7 trillion over the 2009-2019 period — over $330 billion in 2019 alone.”

All of the Bush years only created 3 million jobs compared to 23 million jobs in the Clinton years. Thanks to the growth due to Reagan tax cuts.
So if Clintons 8 years were attributed to Reagan, WHO are Obama's first couple attributed to?
Just so you know, Reagan's tax cuts ADDED to the deficit BIG TIME! They didnt do what they were supposed too..so they were STILL doing that after 12 years huh?? Even after Clinton got RID of them??? LOL You are in serious need of a HISTORY lesson

The republicans have already admitted it wouldn't create jobs. Their big talking point is the mindset of the American people. Talking about consumer confidence. It's all bull talking points. When bush made the big tax cuts no new jobs were created for 2 1/2 years. It's been proven it won't create jobs. All of the Bush years only created 3 million jobs compared to 23 million jobs in the Clinton years. They have already proved it won't help small businesses. What will help the is making the banks lend to them, Which the republicans are trying to stop. If any democrats are opposed to this it is purely for political reasons. They are weak and need to toughen up.

must be grace- I have seen many interview with republicans when they are asked the question. If the tax cuts for the rich don't expire will that create new jobs. They all dance around the question and won't answer that part. They say well no but. And try to talk about consumer confidence again and other talking points. If the tax cuts aren't creating new jobs now do you think magically at the expiration date they will start to create jobs.
