Tuesday, 6/7/11, Public Square

It was on June 7, 2001, that President Bush signed into law the high-end tax cuts that added $2.6 trillion to the national debt.  It was these tax cuts, along with two wars and a recession, that created the deficit now being cited as a reason to pretty much scrap Medicare and once again make a college education a pleasant, impossible dream among the lower classes.

The GOP is still using the same tired line that lowering taxes on the wealthy will create jobs — ten years later!
