The Magic Numbers

Democrats told us three years ago that we could not afford President Bush's tax cuts.

With a straight face, they told us that none of them were affordable.

They told us none of them creates jobs. In fact, they actually warned us that tax cuts would do damage to our long-term economic growth and contribute to the national deficit.

That's what they told us.

Well, the facts tell us something different. Just look.

Since President Bush's 2003 tax cuts we've witnessed:

-34 consecutive months of growth.

-GDP growth has averaged 3.7% a year.

-5.7 million new jobs have been created.

-unemployment has fallen to 4.7%, (lower than the average of the past four decades when it averaged 6%)

-tax cut revenues have increased 36%

Just in case you were wondering.
