Why does anyone think Republicans are good for the economy?

If I'm not mistaken have we not had a Republican in office for the past 8 years. Also didn't the Republican control of congress for the majority of the time. Seems like they are bad for the economy to me. Trickle down? B.S.

Every time the republicans take over our economy goes down the toilet. Every time the dems take over we get a surplus and our tax dollars go towards helping US citizens. Coincidence?

Tax cuts allow the economy to grow, which brings in more $ for the govenrment. Tax increases kill the economy, causing govt. revenue to free fall.

Ronald Reagan. He sure did save us from Jimmy Carter and set up the economy for Bill Clinton to take credit for (along with Bush 41 who embraced "Reaganomics"). Heck, all Clinton had to do was sit there at the desk in the white house (with Monica underneath) and rake in the praise! McCain/Palin '08 Country first

Didn't the Rep's have control of Congress under Clinton and don't they pass the bills, or does Clinton get credit for every thing

One of the most disappointing things about the Bush tax cuts is that most of the breaks go to a small portion of the population while the massive debt goes to all of us. We will be paying off the current 9.6 trillion and projected 56 trillion in debt for generations... More
