Irrefutable Proof the Bush Tax Cuts Were a Miserable Failure

By: Sunday September 26, 2010 11:30 am

I’m not sure why Democrats are letting Republicans tout the Bush tax cuts as though they were so awesome for the country. If the Democrats were doing their job, “Bush tax cuts” would sound like “shit sandwich,” because they objectively weren’t.
