He proved no such thing and raised taxes 11 times to make up for the lost revenues from his first round of tax cuts.

Supply side economics doesn't work, has never worked, and there isn't one legitimate example you can give that it ever has.

Bill Clinton presided over an economy that created 22 million jobs and a budget surplus.

Right after the tax hikes he got through Congress that people like John Kasich said would hurt the economy, and cost jobs. Even Reagan said Clintons economic plan would fail.

Clinton was the only one proven correct. The supply siders are morons, and that's being generous.
Well I am sure you know a lot about being a moron. It is a requirement to be a liberal/progressive/Socialist. Anyway read and learn.

The funniest thing about that comparison is that all of Reagan's debt ceiling increases combined were less than Obama's first one.

They will say that was really Bush who is responsible for that debt. Just wait for it...
Actually, the funniest part of it was that President Obama stated over and over again that if you made less than $250k he would not raise you taxes by one dime. This was his message. First tax that he signed? Raising the tobacco tax. Did he think only rich people smoked?
