I would challenge you to reconcile the second and third paragraphs of your post against the reality of the Clinton Administration. Under his tax increases (reportedly among the largest in U.S. history), the U.S. economy took off like a rocket. Huge employment, balanced budgets, and a surplus which his successor turned into a staggering deficit.
However, I will give you a hall pass on your statements because, being 16, your recollection — or even awareness — of the U.S. economy of from '93 to '01 would be from the POV of a toddler, if not prenatal.
In any case, welcome to the forum, Lexi, and keep those thoughtful and youthful posts coming. We don't have enough young minds in this musty old room.
