Has anyone besides myself actually wondered what the data looks like? By this, I mean, how does the country fare historically, regarding jobs, national debt, even the stock market, with a Democratic President, a Republican President and one sided or divided Congress(es). I have wondered this and recently found information regarding the topic.
I'm sure that one side will use the resounding logic "we dispute those numbers", but I'd like to point out that this information seems to come from a range of sources, including the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Congressional Budget Office, both are non-partisan meaning that Republicans helped to assemble and present this information.
But, as usual, I doubt that Republicans will let historical data distract them from their message. Can anyone tell me a precedent where simply "cutting taxes" and regulations prompted growth? It lead to a fiasco in the '80's (S &L) and to another train wreck in '07.
Why exactly do Mitt Romney and the Republican Party think that these tactics will now work? If anyone has the answer, pleased feel free to respond. But respond to the question I posed, don't simply say, "yes, but Obama/Liberals did this/that/the other."
