    My view is that the Clinton budget in 1993 helped foster the growth that the tech boom also played a factor in.  Yet every Republican voted against it and predicted disaster.  Clinton also stood firm on Republican attempts at medicare cuts (leading to the government shutdown), and yet a surplus was created (only to be squandered by Bush).

    So while outside factors influence the economy, in general Dem policies have at the very least not hindered growth and probably fostered it.

    •  As a Republican, that is a fair enough critique (0+ / 0-)

      It is clear that Republicans predicted economic meltdown if Clinton should enact his economic policies.  To be sure, not all of his economic policies were enacted but enough were to give lie to the Republican concerns of the time.
