I'll take that against anybody's record on deficits in modern American history.
So I guess I'm confused. Why then isn't the Great Obama proposing to return all tax rates to the Clinton levels instead of just the top 2%? Doesn't that reduce deficits even faster? Why not return to Clinton spending levels as well? Did he propose this and I missed it?
