    Deficits have been lower under Democratic rule than under Republican rule for a long time. In fact, the last time we had was a surplus, Clinton was in office, and before that, LBJ's last year in office. In both cases, the economy was soaring.

    This is because government spending is productive. That is why raising taxes to spend more on public goods doesn't hurt the economy.
