Goofy, how come you don't bother mentioning that congress controls the purse strings.

There are 2 reasons Clinton's glorious 90's did so well. Tech revolution and the 94 election that brought in large amounts of Republicans into congress, governerships and every state governemnt. That more than anything kept the dems big gov't spending in check. But go ahead and keep giving your womanizing, rapist pig the credit.

Clinton was a big spender. But he could not do much with Neut on his a$$ all the time.

Reagan had a hostile house and senate most of his 8 years. Not much he could do. It's amazing he did what he could.

Funny how you failed to notice those exceptions but yet point out only the ones that support dem presidents.
