That is revisionist crap. The cause of the boom in the nineties was not Clinton raising taxes. We had dirt cheap gas back then due to a drop in demand in Asia. We had the peace dividend due to the end of the cold war. We had the internet bubble. A lot of factors converged to create the nineties boom, the least of which would be a tax increase. As to Bush, the economy was fine for most of his term and the 2008 downturn had little to nothing to do with the tax cut.
