2 unfunded wars, (one legit) and a huge tax cut all in the same 8 years had nothing to do with the meltdown......not to mention the Medicare drug program for the elderly-which I commend Bush for his understanding how so many regular folks are stuggling with high drug costs-but it was the wrong time to start such a large new program. The Republicans signed off on all of this.
It still begs the question if all that tax cut money was invested in job creation-why were so few jobs created and why did we go back into a recession. The Bureau of Labor statistics keep accurate non partisan data on increases/decreases and percentage of growth in jobs for each year.
If the money was creating jobs-why did Bush give out not one but two stimulis rebates to Americans to stir job growth and the economy?
