And Just In Case You'd Forgotten

Time to run this again:

If you 're interested, you might like to read this article from Daily Kos this morning, which also features this graphic, and which explains in some detail how Bill Clinton created the largest budget surpluses in the history of the country, and how the Republicans under George Bush deliberately turned them into the largest deficits in history, by stealing the money and giving it to the rich.

As a minor sidelight, I'd like to point out that Clinton created his surpluses through something called the "Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act," a neutral name if ever there was one; Bush destroyed the economy through something he chose to call the "Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001."

Economic growth indeed.
