Actually, I disagree. To get Clinton-era economies back you need to have what Clinton had: An entire new sector of the economy opening up coupled with a massive increase in worker productivity.

I don't agree that we can go back to "Clinton prosperity." I just agree that the tax increase would be a good trade for reduced spending, reduced regulation, and a strong dollar, even if a tax increase would offset some of the benefits from the other policy changes.
