(Many thanks to my friend Dan Clifton over at the American Shareholders Association for painting such a clear economic picture here...)

“None of these tax cuts is affordable. None of them creates jobs, and they are not fair. All of them do damage to our long-term economic growth and contribute to the national deficit.” -House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA); May 09, 2003

Fact: 6.6 Million New Jobs

Fact: Unemployment Rate Drops From 6.3 Percent to 4.6 Percent

Fact: Unemployment Rate Dropping Faster Than CBO Expected

Fact: GDP Soars Following Tax Cut

Fact: Total Household Net Worth Has Increased by $14.4 Trillion Since the Tax Cut

Fact: The Deficit Has Declined $208 Billion Since April 2004 and $60 Billion Since the Tax Cut Was Signed Into Law

Ladies and gentlemen, it is still the greatest story never told...
