The math is simple

Leftists will try to pass the lie that the Bush Tax Cuts increased the deficit.

That is a flat out partisan lie. The facts are easy to check, federal tax revenue actually went up after the Bush Tax Cuts.

What cause the massive increase in the deficit during the Bush 43 administration was the huge increase in spending that went on at the same time. You can call President G.W. Bush many things, but a fiscal conservative isn't one of them.

The Republicans in Congress were just as guilty on the irresponsible spending, which is why they lost the votes of their base in the 2006 and 2008 elections.

As I have said before, the Republicans got their collective asses kicked, and they deserved it. They need to find their way out of the woods, and a return to actual fiscal conservatism is a damn good first step.
