Closed circuit to Briane and Dan

Posted by: Hammer / 7:56 AM

The Washington Monthly:
The answer, of course, is that Reagan didn't grow his way out of the deficits caused by his 1981 tax cut. As the chart on the right shows (adapted from this Treasury report), he raised taxes twice in 1982, and then raised them again in 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, and 1987. But even with those seven tax increases and several years of strong growth, he still didn't get rid of his deficit.

The next time we play poker, bring your own chart.
