Do you think the debt would have been higher without the Bush tax cuts? If I am not mistaken, Bush was the first president in the last 100 years to go to war and not raise taxes to pay for it. Just wondering if the tax cuts paid for the war better than raising taxes would have.
I think raising taxes would have started this recession 5 years ago.
