  •  The problem with Republican reasoning is that it (3+ / 0-)

    is based on their ideology.
    They make a conclusion and then try to use selective facts to support it.  That is exactly what this 'argument' is based on.

    When I tried to argue this point against conservatives, they try to obfuscate the issue, arguing that the reason Clinton had the economic boom wasn't because he raised taxes but because he was lucky to have a "dot com" boom and blah blah blah. But Im NOT arguing WHY he had the boom and for the purposes of this argument I DON'T CARE. Republicans don't realize that. Im simply saying that if raising taxes was sufficient to harm the economy then Clinton would have harmed the economy. Since that didn't happen, the Republican claim is false at its face.
