Just so you know Reagan (Rep.) had to clean up Jimmy Carter (Dem.) mess. Reagan’s tax reform policies resulted in the largest peacetime economic boom in American history and nearly 35 million more jobs. So I don’t know what your talking about, and Bush was hit with 9/11 if you forgot so of course his spending will be high and the economy took a big hit. Besides it seems that the Democrats tax reforms seem to hurt the poor more than the rich since these reforms usually have loopholes for companies to get away with less taxes (if any). These loopholes are added because politicians are funded by these companies so you can look at them as favors.
