I linked to this fine piece in comments of a thread at American Descent. It’s so good I felt it deserved a post of its own. None of the case histories listed are news to anyone paying attention. That is, to read them and be surprised isn’t likely amongst conservatives. The positive effect of cutting taxes on the economy, to say nothing of the increase in federal revenues, is well understood on the right. We also understand that reducing government spending, particularly on the type of pork in this “stimulus” package, is also essential if we ever hope to reduce the national debt. It would’ve been nice if Bush knew that.
