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 likes to blame their trillion-dollar budget deficits on the Bush tax cuts  of 2001 and 2003, but The Heritage Foundation’s Brian Riedl disagrees . Brian’s research  has been the subject of contentious debate, with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) responding directly to his claims . Riedl has since picked apart  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 .
