From the “Really, the ‘Christian’ Left literally fails at economics” category . . .

The “Christian” Left loves memes like this.  They think it actually makes a point.  Aside from the truth that Leftists literally fail at basic economics, they ignore obvious facts of history.

  • Bill Clinton does not get credit for the 90’s financial results.  The Republican Congress prevented most of what he wanted to do, and they supported his welfare reforms that Leftists hate!
  • There was this thing called the “PC/Internet Boom” that had just a slight impact on the economy.
  • There was an artificial run up at the end of Clinton’s term (the “Internet bubble”) that burst on Bush’s watch.  There were huge capital gains taxes in the late 90’s because of this.
  • We fought wars because Clinton didn’t take out Bin Laden when he had the chance.
  • The 2008 crisis was caused by the Left’s housing policy that Bush tried in vain to stop.
  • “Tax breaks for the rich” makes for effective populist talking points, but when you properly translate it as “tax reductions for those who pay taxes” it loses some steam.

  1. I can agree with some of these points, but not all. Bin Laden had nothing to do with the Iraq war nor did he have anything to do with not paying for the wars. That is why the tax cuts for the wealthy was a foolish policy at the time.

      1. While the Bush tax cuts reduced the tax rate on most people by about 2%, he lowered the tax rate to the top income bracket by 3.8%. This is the first time I have heard anyone deny this fact. Usually conservatives just defend it, not deny it.

  2. I feel the need to point this out: The dot com bubble burst on October 12, 2000, almost a full month BEFORE Bush was elected. I guess Bush was so bad that the impact of his presidency went backwards in time.
