Yep, they are stubborn things. Nice cherry picking:
The Republican congressional majorities elected in 1994 were greeted in February, 1995 with then President Clinton’s new budget projecting continued federal deficits of $200 billion or more indefinitely into the future. The ensuing government shutdown battles ended with budget policies that cut both taxes and spending.
As to Reagan, revenues went up with tax cuts. What also went up? Spending. Dems promised, like Obama is now said to be promising tax hikes NOW and spending cuts LATER. The Dem MO. Guess what? They spending cuts never came, if they had, the deficits would have been reduced.
Same with George Bush, revenues generated from Clinton's holy tax rates went up after Bush's tax cuts. FACT. Too bad he was too willing to go along with the huge spending the dems wanted. And when they took over Congress in 2006, things got much worse. FACT.
As the to the wars, nearly every democrat voted to go to war.
Fail. As ususal.
