Heritage in Focus: The Bush Tax Cuts and the Deficit Myth

Posted By Hannah Sternberg On August 6, 2010 @ 4:00 pm In Economics | Comments Disabled

The leftist majority in Congress┬álikes to blame their trillion-dollar budget deficits on the Bush tax cuts [1] of 2001 and 2003, but The Heritage Foundation’s Brian Riedl disagrees [2]. Brian’s research [3] has been the subject of contentious debate, with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) responding directly to his claims [4]. Riedl has since picked apart [5] every one of the CBPP’s points.

Now you can listen to Brian discuss his research in the latest Heritage in Focus podcast: listen here [6].
