If one wants the holy Clinton era situation, then you must also want the spending cuts that republicans demanded and got and you must increase not only the top 2% but everyone else's tax rates. The "middle class" tax cuts that 0bama says he doesn't want to raise were higher under Clinton and if it weren't for George Bush, middle tax taxpayers would be still paying the higher Clinton rates that 0bama now touts as his own idea. The reason the deficit was under control during Clinton was that everyone paid more in taxes but also that spending was curtailed significantly due to a republican congress. Now 0bama wants to cherry pick and forget two major factors for the success during the Clinton era and put forth his usual class warfare and nonsense that the rich aren't paying their fair share. The estimated revenue from raising the rates to Clinton's top rate only on the top 2% would run the government for about 8 days. So this is all democrat manure and demagoguery. Unlike Clinton, he has no desire to cut spending, make everyone pay their fair share of taxes including the middle class, and he doesn't give a rip about working with the other side.So by 0 trying to claim that he wants to go back to the Clinton era taxation, he is full of crap and he knows it. Trying to compare what he wants to do with what Clinton actually did is deliberately being deceptive and making an apples to oranges comparison. But this kind of deceitful sophistry for political gain and power is what motivates this ruler of radicals, to the detriment of our country. But heck, just give me my free stuff!
