It's totally clear that the Bush Tax Cuts inflated the deficit and hurt the economy. It's wonderful to see the NO NO NO Republicans squirm tell the American People "we can't extend your unemployment benefits because it adds to the deficit, but we can add to the deficit by extending tax cuts to our fat cat corporate friends."
Tax cuts are have proven to be wealth escalators for the few and do not translate into jobs. The rich and corporate simply figure out a way to keep that extra cash so they can more boats and planes and they do not create jobs with it.
The Administration has done more in one year than most do in a full term. NPR's reporting is spot on and we are lucky to have an independent news organization in the country.
