    GOP gains seats in Nov. Dem's get back in, in 2012

    Just the facts, man!

    The US GAINED 23 million jobs during the Clinton 8 years.

    The US LOST 3 million jobs (tax cuts and all) from year end 2000 to year end 2009 (the Bush 8 years plus 1 year of the Bush Great Recession).

    Show me again where tax cuts produce jobs?

    For the chart, go to FRED. Then click on view data for the data.

    • So, you are against tax cuts? Then I take it that you are OK with tax INCRASES. HOW much MORE in taxes are YOU willing to pay....50%...75%..100%...at which point is there equilibrium? Actually...tax cuts do work, when they are combines with REDUCED/RESTRAINED SPENDING. Regulations and laws prevent/restrict businesses from investing capital on inventory/machinery/PERSONNEL. Tax cuts alone will not do it....Congress MUST decrease spending.
