Responding to a recent post, one of our more pointed commentators excoriated me for claiming that I feared for my wallet under an all Democratic Party Federal Government saying in part:
"The last time a Democratic president and congress combined to significantly raise taxes, they were doing it to pay for the Vietnam War."
Now, I am probably always deserving of a good scolding but I have to ask: What about 1993? It didn't happen? Or it wasn't "significant"? WJ Clinton's first term, all Dem Congress, big tax increase. Ring any bells for anybody?
Republicans called it "the biggest tax increase in history". Here the factcheck.org website debunks that myth saying: "the Clinton tax increase was indeed large, but not the largest."
Heck, according to them it was only the second largest.
The last chopper left Saigon in 1975 right??
